The Huron River Water Trail will serve river recreationists for generations to come. Work on the Water Trail is focused in these areas:

  • Make and maintain trail markers and information signs at portages and access points
  • Build well-constructed launches, landings, and portage paths that provide easy access to the Water Trail
  • Create top-quality tools such as the waterproof Paddler’s Companion, visitor’s guide, and web-based information
  • Coordinate local communities, landowners, and trail users to appreciate the value of public access to the Huron River

Stewardship Opportunities

Be a Trailblazer!

Building and maintaining the Water Trail is an “all-hands-on-deck” proposition.


Consider adopting a segment of the Water Trail. Trail stewards are needed to work in pairs or crews to provide ongoing oversight of trail conditions, report problems, and perform light maintenance.

Trail Maintenance

We need help with installing the new way-finding signs along the river.
