Welcome to the Huron River Water Trail!

The Huron River Water Trail is a 104-mile (167 km) inland paddling trail connecting people to the river’s natural environment, its history and the communities it touches in Michigan’s Lower Peninsula.  From the rapids at Delhi and Dexter to the placid flat water at the entrance to Lake Erie, a variety of paddling experiences await you.  For kayaking, canoeing, fishing on a fly, and other freshwater pursuits, follow the Huron River Water Trail to learn what others already know – that Huron River is a Michigan treasure worth exploring.

The canoe livery at Gallup Park in Ann Arbor currently offers the only universal access launch on the Huron River Water Trail. Click here for more information on how to use the launch.

The Huron has been designated as the 18th trail of the National Water Trail System, joining a network of nation exemplary water trails from Puget Sound to the Hudson River. Details here.
