There is a stereotype of environmental lawyers as your typical outdoorsy person, and I definitely fit the mold. And with the winter ice finally melted, I am excited to begin the annual rituals of kayaking and canoeing trips.

For outdoor enthusiasts looking to plan their paddling trips along the Detroit Heritage River Water Trail, I wanted to share this great new resource. An updated Detroit River Paddling Guide was unveiled last week.

You can download or view the updated map here:

The document also includes guidance for local municipalities who are interested in developing paddling amenities, and it highlights opportunities for infrastructure improvements along the Detroit River.

The new guide offers detailed descriptions of each location, a key feature in designing your outdoor adventure. The guide also features the newest launch sites, updated information on existing locations, safety suggestions, and resources for local paddling groups. Recommended paddling routes are also highlighted, presenting not only mileage, but water time and possible conditions as well.

I have downloaded my guide, and I highly recommend it for other paddlers looking to see the Detroit River and the rest of the Heritage River Water Trail.
