Drop in at Lansing’s Moore’s Park directly across the river from the nearly 100 year old Otto E. Eckart Power Station with the city’s iconic triple smokestacks towering overhead. The route is perfect for the beginning paddler as the river is wide and slow moving for the length of the trip. You can expect to see numerous turtles and waterfowl as you wind through the historic industrial center of Lansing back to downtown.

Drop in to the wide and shallow section of the Red Cedar River from Kruger’s Landing east of downtown. The shallow Sycamore Creek delta/floodplain require some tight handling but is navigable for even the novice paddler. Take some time to explore the branching creek and you will find deer, waterfowl, blue heron and turtles. If you are lucky you might even catch a glimpse of the nesting pair of bald eagles that made the area their home in 2015. This adventure takes you past beautiful Potter Park and the Zoo as you make your way into central Lansing. Meet the Grand River at the confluence and take that through Downtown to the City Market.

Please note, this trip is doable in less than 2 hours. We give you extra time to explore and relax. No need to rush!
