Friends of the Rouge is currently working with the ten communities and Wayne County to develop a water trail along the Lower Rouge from Canton to the Detroit River. Meetings are held every other month on the third Thursday. Email email@example.com if interested.

A signage package has also been developed.
The water is generally safe for boating if there has been no heavy rain or snowmelt; swimming is not recommended.
The Lower Rouge River Water Trail is a consortium of interested groups and communities and is a project of the Lower Rouge River Water Trail Leadership Committee. Contact us through firstname.lastname@example.org.
