Located in one of Michigan’s most popular state parks, this canoe trail winds through placid marsh waters adorned with tall reeds and floating fields of lily pads. Ideal for a leisurely morning or afternoon paddle, the Ludington Canoe Pathway features a nice blend of open water and marshy waterways. Blessed with abundant populations of waterfowl—including swans, herons, geese, and ducks—the intimate ponds and bayous that comprise the pathway can easily conjure up an atmosphere reminiscent of far more remote northern settings. Of course, you’re much more likely to catch a whiff of this northwoods ambience on a cool midweek morning paddle than on a sunny Saturday afternoon, when the trail can get pretty crowded.
