Ochlockonee River Water Trail
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.
