The Whitefish River canoe trail offers approximately 28 miles of good canoeing. It offers the canoer two trails, the East Branch is approximately 8 miles longer than the West Branch. Two and a half miles south of FR-2236, the two branches converge and flow past the bridge on U.S. 2 and onto the public boat launch site at Rapid River. Deer, waterfowl, and bird sightings (including bald eagles) are common.

In very early spring the river can be deep, swift, and cold. Canoeing at this time can be dangerous and should be left to experienced canoeist wearing wet suits. The best time to canoe is from April 30th, when the river is high and wild, to the end of June when the water level is low. It may be necessary to tow through some shallow, rocky areas when the water level is low.
