Further Information/Guest Feedback:
Paddler feedback confirms the Pine is simply the best paddlesports river in the Midwest. It's gradient gives it the most fun-factor and makes it the best river on which to learn and practice paddling skills. The nice part is anyone can do it. And PRPC is properly positioned to help them. There's absolutely no experience necessary.

The Pine is approximately 65 miles long, and has a gradient of 12 feet per mile, the highest of any northern Michigan river. With several access sites, you can take a trip most any length you desire. And with several campgrounds along and near the Pine, itís a great stream for a two or three day canoe trip.

Walker Bridge Canoe Livery
The Pine Riverís Best Kept Secret, the Walker Bridge Canoe Livery. Located on the upper Pine, this office is off the beaten path, so fewer folks discover this beautiful stretch of river, where the stream is a bit smaller and a bit shallower. WBCL is right on the river's edge, and all trips end right at the office.
It is the only rental right on the river. With the riverside location, we incur less expense associated with transportation and can rent to you for less money. It is a gorgeous stretch of river that you should not miss. There are day trips of 2, 3, 4, and 5 hours ending at our office.
On Highway M-37, 1.5 miles south of Highway M-55.
