||Mason Tract Canoe TrailRoscommon, Michigan
Do yourself a favor this summer and canoe or kayak the best water trail in Michigan. The South Branch of the AuSable River wanders for 15 miles through the heart of a northen Michigan wilderness known as "The Mason Tract". A scenic home for eagles, deer, beaver, mink, otters, fox, and many other native animals.
Floating the river is the best way to explore the 4500 acre Mason Tract. Rent a canoe or kayak from Watters Edge Canoe Livery for this popular 4 hour river trip. We also have shorter trips for families with younger children.

|Canoe and Kayak Trips
Michigan's AuSable River
WECL has four AuSable River one day canoe and kayak trips that range from 1½ hours to 5½ hours. Trip times are an easy paddle time, and if needed you can ask us for extra time. We like to have all canoes and kayaks off the Mason Tract by 6:00 pm.
Make your Northern Michigan vacation last a little longer, plan a Sunday canoe trip before heading home.
May and September are great for an enjoyable river trip or any weekday when canoe traffic on the AuSable is at a minimum.
Saturdays in July and August are Prime Time Rates. Contact us for a reservation and start time.
