Here's whats happening around Michigan.

The Ontonagon Water Trail is exceptional for its views of the Porcupine Mountains, the hardwoods of the Hiawatha  National Forest and it has access to the ruins of the lighthouse at Misery Bay on one end and at the other end is the shipwreck Panama at the Mineral River.  The river trail has 13 launch points, a campground and access to several rivers.
Head to White Pine for good food at The Konteka and the nightly visit of their resident Black Bears.
Beaver Island. The most remote community in Michigan.
The Beaver Island Water Trail is a 42-mile paddling trail that circumnavigates the entire Island. most of the Water Trail is geared toward adventure paddlers who are comfortable paddling in the unpredictable conditions of Lake Michigan and accustomed to rustic access sites and overnight beach camping. If you are a novice paddler, consider a trip to the Island’s harbor or inland lakes, or consider hiring a paddling guide.
Mendon. The River Country Heritage Water Trail is made up of three different river trails, two along the St. Joseph River and one along the Nottawa Creek.
As the St. Joseph winds its way west of Mendon towards Three Rivers, the ending point of the first phase of the trail, it passes under the Langley Covered Bridge (SJ-12), built in 1867. The 282-foot bridge, named after a local pioneer family, is the longest covered bridge in the state as well as one of the few that remain.  See a trading post from the early 1800s
