Welcome to the Blueways of St. Clair!
Come discover this beautiful comprehensive Blueway system along the St. Clair River corridor, from Anchor Bay to the northern border of the county along Lake Huron.
A Blueway is the river version of a greenway or bike trail. It offers another opportunity for St. Clair County residents and tourists to enjoy outdoor recreation. This is a joint project between the St. Clair County Metropolitan Planning Commission (MPC) and the St. Clair County Parks and Recreation Commission (PARC).
To inventory and enhance coastal access points, bolster the protection of sensitive environments along the corridor and responsibly promote recreational opportunities along the entire Blueway. This grant is made possible through the Michigan Coastal Management Program. From this website, you can;
- Explore 16 different paddling routes in 8 different water bodies. The website offers maps to print and bring along with you on your journey.
- Explore many different land trails, including the Bridge to Bay trail that extends from the Blue Water Bridge to the shores of Anchor Bay.
- Each water or land trail has dozens of ‘assets' associated with it; either places to eat, sleep, shop or learn about history and culture.
- Some assets have more information on other websites, such as detailed 360 degree virtual tours.
- Emergency first responder links are shown, as well as detailed current weather conditions from two sources.
- Create an itinerary of your favorite spots and generate a map and driving directions.
- Check out the mobile version of the Blueways of St. Clair with your smartphone!
Please note that on each asset, blueway or greenway we have provided a Google map background. We have also added a recreation layer to the background. When navigating around the Google map one will see green shapes. The green areas are public and private recreation land. Just hover over the green space with the mouse and click on it. A callout box should pop up with the name of the recreation area, owner and type.
