Southeast Michigan has many special parks and waterways just waiting to be explored, but the Huron River holds a special place in Brooke's heart. On a rare day off, you might find Brooke and her beloved rottweiler Loki canoeing, kayaking, or paddleboarding this wonderful river that cuts straight through the heart of Milford, Dexter, Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, and Belleville among others. Over 130 miles long and rising from the Huron Swamp in White Lake Township, the lovely Huron River snakes through five counties and thirteen parks and recreation areas in southeast Michigan before emptying into Lake Erie by Rockwood, Michigan.
