Water Trail Events
Before You Launch


Placid and tranquil, the headwaters section of the Clinton River features beautiful glacial lakes and wetlands, offering the opportunity for quiet reflection
and immersion in the natural environment.


Heart of the Clinton

Definitely not for the faint of heart, this section of the river features steep gradients, hairpin turns and fluctuating water levels. Experience advised!

Lower River

The Lower River

This section features some of the most beautiful sections of the Clinton River like heavily forested riverbanks and stretches of slow-moving water before
emptying into beautiful Lake St. Clair.
