Our Trails

Hennepin Loop A short loop from Wyandotte around Hennepin point, to the GI Lighthouse returning by the channel between Hennepin point and Grosse Ile.


  • The channel between Hennepin Point and Grosse Ile can be difficult to paddle late in the summer due to vegetation.
  • Mink are often sighted on the rocks on Hennepin Point shoreline.
  • This is the best way to to view the Grosse Ile lighthouse, from the water, because it is not accessible from the shore without special permissions.
  • Swans and other water fowl are often observed in the marshy area between Hennepin point and the Grosse Ile Toll Bridge.
