What is a Water Trail?
Water equivalent of a hiking trail. Blueways, canoe trails, and paddle trails are all water trails.
A water trail also has access points along the river, like trailheads, for putting boats on the water or taking them off.
Usually for non-motorized boats like canoes and kayaks.
Water trails can be various lengths and are used by paddlers, anglers, hikers and picnickers of all ages and abilities.
Check out our newest Paddle Map Book for the Ochlockonee River Water Trail. Prepared by Thomas University graduate students with Dr. Christine Ambrose.
