Paddle the Boardman: Schecks to Shumsky

This beautiful paddle showcases “Up North” Michigan at its finest. The first leg of your 10.4 mile journey will take you past a smattering of private cabins before opening up into the Brown Bridge Quiet Area, the site of a nearly $5,000,000 dam removal and river restoration project completed in Summer 2012 ( Your second leg traverses a diverse river valley filled with wildlife as you pass by a variety of cabins and paddle under several bridges large and small.
