The Huron River enters Wayne County at Belleville Lake and travels 34 Miles to the Lake Erie. Belleville Lake is 6 miles long and may be accessed by numerous boat launches. Downstream of Belleville Lake the Huron River is gently flowing and suitable for novice paddlers. For the 19 miles that follow Belleville Lake, the river travels through Lower Huron Metropark, Willow Metropark and Oakwoods Metropark. These three metroparks connect end-to-end and are on both sides of the river in most places. The result is one of the longest stretches of flowing river bordered mostly by public land. The chain of metroparks have six access points and a biking trail that parallels the river for the entire distance should you want to add another dimension to your trip. After a challenging portage around the Flat Rock Dam, the last nine miles takes you through Flat Rock and a mix of parkland and residential shorelines down to the river mouth at Lake Erie Metropark and Pointe Mouille State Game Area.
