This toolkit is designed to give you a step-by-step guide to developing a water trail. Whether you have an established trail or are developing a new water trail on your local waterway, this toolkit should provide you with some guidance.
The first step to getting a water trail in your community is to evaluate the resources available, river access and the potential economic return for the community. Use this planning checklist to help you get started. We also have a list of budget items you may consider while evaluating your resources.

CONSERVATION & STEWARDSHIP
The water trail users are provided with opportunities to learn about the value of water resources, cultural heritage, boating skills, and outdoor ethics.
There is a demonstrated ability to support routine and long-term maintenance investments on the water trail. Facilities are designed, constructed, and maintained by incorporating sustainability principles.
