Recommended for beginners. Put in at the Beard Road Access at Mill Creek, right where Mill Creek enters the Black River.  Wind through the Port Huron State Game Area and float downstream to the Wadhams Road bridge.  A beautiful trip down the Black River in Clyde Township. Very remote, no cell phone coverage.  This route takes you past the Woodsong County Park, where you can stop for lunch and use the ADA Kayak Launch, or walk to the top of the hill to use the portable toilet.  The park is not a good place to end a paddle trip, as the walk to the parking lot is long and steep.
