Put in at Seitz Park just below dam on east side of river cement steps lead down to river for easy entry. Easy paddle for first 2 hours to St. Patrick's Park on East side.

The park is about 30 min. past toll road bridge. After that the river widens and slows. This is only reason I'd rate this as moderate is that this section is slow water and pretty much constant paddling; take out is at boat launch just above dam at Niles, MI.




N. Michigan Ave runs between South Bend and Niles
Take out in Niles is on Bond Road
