Put in at any park or road right of way (ROW)on Lake Huron, and float to Marysville, St. Clair or Marine City.  There could be personal watercraft or freighter traffic along the way.

Use extreme caution when paddling under the Blue Water Bridges!  The current is very strong and there can be substantial wave action. Do not attempt the bridge area on a weekend after noon, as increased power boat traffic make conditions worse for paddling.

ALWAYS wear your life jacket in the St. Clair River!
