Put in at the China Township Park at King Road, then paddle to the St. Clair River, through Marine City. It is 14.5 miles from King Road to the St. Clair River. You could make a stop at the East China Township park for a picnic! Pass under bridges, float past fields, woods, homes and through Marine City.

Note: There are many felled trees in the Belle River, making passage difficult at times. This route is clogged with felled trees near the King Road water access. The river is more open near Marine City.

Two new water-access points have been added to this Blueway at East China Township Park and Springborn Road Access.

Level - Easy

Length - 14.5 miles one way

Drive to Columbus County Park upstream to visit 385 acres of woods, fields and the Belle River! Take a virtual tour here!
