The Downriver Linked Greenways Initiative (DLGI) began in 1999 as a result of the Downriver Summit, hosted by Congressman John D. Dingell. It is a community-driven regional effort to coordinate non-motorize transportation in the Downriver area. The Downriver communities recognize the importance and need for the improvement of issues surrounding the quality of life of Downriver residents, employees and visitors by connecting communities to one another and to the larger Southeast Michigan Region.
Just in time for paddling season, DLGI is proud to announce the launch of a new user guide for the Detroit Heritage River Water Trail. The new guide offers detailed descriptions of each location, a key feature in designing your outdoor adventure. Some of the newest additions include new launch sites, updated information on existing locations, safety suggestions, and resources for local paddling groups. Furthermore, recommended paddling routes are highlighted presenting not only mileage, but water time and possible conditions. Learn more about water trails and their benefits here.
