Water Trails & Paddling

Build a Water Trail

Want to build a water trail in your community but not so sure where to start?  Let us start you off in the right direction with a few resources to begin your planning.

Georgia Water Trails Program

Georgia River Network (GRN) launched the Georgia Water Trails Program in 2010 in response to the need for a comprehensive source of information regarding the creation of water trails, to support representatives and communities in developing their water trails, and to provide information to recreational users about Georgia’s Water Trails.

Currently there is no state agency in Georgia that serves this function. To unify the planning and management of the water trails throughout the state, the technical staff from GRN used Best Management Practices from national organizations and other state and Federal agencies to develop best practices that promote safe, legal and sustainable water trails.
