How will fallen trees and log jams be approached?

Limited removal to provide a pathway for canoes and kayaks with guidance from DNR officials to capitalize on fish habitat and limiting bank erosion. The Bangor/South Haven Heritage Water Trail Association (B/SH HWTA) does not clea’ the river from bank to bank. A pathway is cut and trimmed along the route. B/SH HWTA leaders were trained by MDNR persons to cut a 3- to 4-foot pathway wide enough for a canoe or kayak to paddle through. The training made sure B/SH HWTA maintains the fish habitat that exists along the route. The training also taught B/SH HWTA leaders how and where to cut a pathway without causing erosion on either side of the bank.
