In Lansing we’ve all heard of the River Trail--the 20-mile plus network of paved trails alongside the Grand and Red Cedar rivers.  Thousands of walkers, runners and bikers use it yearly.  

Is it time for a Grand River ‘water trail?’

A number of river and paddling enthusiasts would say ‘yes.’

A water trail offers canoeists and kayakers a more guided paddling experience, with better-marked access points and other amenities.  Proponents say water trails can also generate tourism for communities along its route.
