Flint River Water Trail

The Flint River Water Trail (FRWT) Planning Project, with the assistance of the River, Trails, and Conservation Assistance Program of the National Parks Service, has brought together project partners, the Flint River Watershed Coalition, Genesee County Metropolitan Planning Commission, and Genesee County Parks & Recreation Commission, land managing communities, and stakeholders to create a common vision that will increase awareness of the Flint River and opportunities for education, recreation, and conservation along the water trail. Over the past year and a half we have taken inventory of all access sites, identified potential areas for enhancements, engaged with the public and Flint River landowners, created a FRWT Management & Development Guide and interactive trip planning map, and applied for National Water Trail Designation through the National Water Trails System.

There are 24 access sites along the 73 mile Flint River Water Trail. The water trail provide paddlers with a variety of paddling opportunities and experiences. You can paddle in natural environments, and through small towns or an urban area from the City of Lapeer to Montrose Township (includes portages around dams)! We offer a number of opportunities of varying distance and time to get out on YOUR river. Join us for tour
