If you really want to experience the best of Georgia’s rivers, you need ACCESS—places to easily put in a canoe, a kayak, an inner tube or a jonboat and take off downstream. You can spend a lazy day with your kids, your neighbors or your out-of-town visitors—just floating, swimming, fishing, jumping off ill-advised rope swings, hunting for mussels and arrowheads, watching wildlife, and then racing to the take-out when your stomachs start rumbling.
Giving you access to your local river is what our Water Trail program is all about.
Water trails are just what they sound like: marked access points and routes along our vibrant waterways that make it easier for you to get into and onto the water, as well as providing information and maps, plus places to camp or picnic along the way.
You can discover your local water trails through our Water Trails Website. If your local river doesn’t have a water trail, YOU—yes you—can get one started!
It’ll not only make it easier for you to enjoy your river, water trails can also lead to cleaner waterways and more dollars to the local economy!
