The launch site for the Top of the Shiawassee River State Heritage Water Trail in Holly, Michigan. The water trail covers 7 miles of beautiful twists and turns in the Shiawassee River from Holly,MI toward Fenton, MI
Plenty of parking at WaterWorks Park at 690 Broad Street in Holly, MI. Easy launching of kayaks and canoes into the Shiawassee River.
Paddling conditions to be expected:
Gentle current most days making for a generally easy paddle at 2.5 mph for approximately a 3 hour paddle covering the 7 miles until the take out at Strom Park in Fenton.
Difficulty of the trip:
Suitable for beginners with some paddling skills to avoid the natural terrain in the river. HeadWatersTrails Inc. sends crews out to clear fallen trees from the river
Length of trip: 7 miles ~ 3 hour paddle at 2.5 mph ~ easy leisurely pace
NONE needed - people uncomfortable running certain sections are encouraged to walk around them.
Type of trip:
You could paddle both ways , but it will become a 14 mile trip
I recommend a shuttle for most paddlers, stage a car at Strom Park in Fenton.
Tons of wildlife to see along the way
