Cruising the river

The first canoe trip on the Westland/Inkster section of the Lower Rouge River Water Trail included several amateur paddlers. The Summer Magic Paddle Trip was organized by MetroParks and the rescheduled Friends of the Rouge Outdoor Afro Paddle Trip was the maiden voyage on the Canton stretch of the water trail. Help in the effort was provided by  Huron-Clinton Metroparks, the Inkster Task Force, Simple Adventures, National Kidney Foundation of Michigan, the City of Inkster  and Wayne County Parks.  Outdoor Afro, Motor City Canoe Rental Rouge River Outpost and Canton Township also provided help to ensure the water trip was a success. Friends of the Rouge members were also on hand to make sure all the paddlers were safe.
