Welcome to the Blueways of St. Clair!

Pine River - City of St. ClairCome 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 water 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).

Our Mission

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, Office of the Great Lakes.  From this website, you can;

  • Explore 17 different paddling routes in 9 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 and the Wadhams to Avoca Trail and Trestle.
  • Each water or land trail has dozens of ‘assets' associated with it; either places to eat, sleep, shop or learn about history and culture.
