HARSENS ISLAND BIKE RIDE
For a scenic bike ride, hop on a ferry in Clay Township and explore Harsens Island. For bicyclists, the ferry service is free and only takes a few minutes. The island is about 8 miles long and 3 miles wide with a few roads that offer loop routes. There are a few restaurants/bars and convenience stores on the island that cater to near-by boaters and locals.
Harsens Island is part of the St. Clair Flats, the world’s largest freshwater delta, which is known for its rare migrating waterfowl and wildlife, so keep an out for blue heron, King Rail Forster’s Terns, Black Terns and Purple Martins.
Tip: The island can get busy with traffic on summer weekends. Visit on a quiet weekday for a more relaxing experience.
