Pinckney’s rolling woodlands feature a cluster of interconnected small lakes that offer a mellow afternoon of paddling. This chain of small lakes nestled in southeast Michigan’s Pinckney Recreation Area will never be mistaken for rugged and remote canoeing meccas like the U.P.’s Sylvania Wilderness. Homes and cottages line the shores of many of Pinckney’s lakes, and motorized boat traffic is permitted throughout the area. Nonetheless, Pinckney’s picturesque waters do provide canoeists in Michigan’s heavily populated southeastern region with a relaxing alternative to the usual river trips.
