Clinton River - Kayak Trip / Canoe Trip

Report Type: Day Trip Report
Trip Dates: April 7, 2013
Nearest City: Waterford, MI
Difficulty: Easy

Description:

Kayaked the upper section of the Clinton from the covered bridge at Elizabeth Lake Road near Airport Road to the boat ramp on Cass Lake's Dodge Brothers #4 State Park.

Surprising how remote the trip seemed given the river meanders through the suburbs of Detroit. Saw deer, blue herons, egrets and a furry mammal of an indeterminate species. Probably a muskrat. Water was crystal clear and deep enough all the way. Used a bike to retrieve my vehicle. 2 hours on the water; 1/2 hour on the bike.

Fees:

Recreational Passport for access to the state park
