A labyrinth of reeds and cattails teeming with wildlife. Paddlers entering the expanse of wetlands known as St. John’s Marsh can lose themselves—and all their worries—in a watery maze of swaying grasses and aquatic plants. Although you can see most of the area within two to three hours of casual paddling, its location less than an hour northeast of Detroit makes it a pleasant escape from the urban grind.
