Miles of trails makes for hours of fun.
We're working with our partners in the Middle and Lower Grand to create Michigan's longest water trail. When complete, the Grand River Water Trail (GRWT) will offer 225 miles of accessible, safe, and fun recreational opportunities for all people, joining communities along Michigan's longest river, from the headwaters to Lake Michigan, and connecting individuals and families to the river's recreational, ecological, historic, cultural, and economic resources.
Parts of the trail are already complete. The Upper Grand River Water Trail (UGRWT) offers over 90 miles of local paddle routes right here in your backyard. The Upper Grand Water Trail extends from Vandercook Lake County Park (Jackson County) to the City of Eaton Rapids (Eaton County), where it meets the Middle Grand River Water Trail. Both trails were designated “State Water Trails” by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
