Whether you travel north or south this year, two new national water trails provide the opportunity to explore and connect to America’s waterways.
Recognizing the achievements of federal, state, and local partners, Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell has designated the Bayou Teche Paddle Trail and the Huron River Water Trail as the 17th and 18th trails of the National Water Trails System.
“Expanding water trails nationwide improves the environment and adds value to local economies,” said Secretary Jewell. “The National Water Trail System helps people discover the natural beauty and history of local places and provides fun opportunities for families to explore the world around them.”
