The Alabama Scenic River Trail is the only blueway that has it all—from mountain streams to river delta to the salty waves of the Gulf of Mexico. Paddling and powerboat experiences and exploration abound along over 3000 miles of accessible waterways with amenities and campsites to support everything from long-distance touring to organized paddles to races, overnight trips or any kind of day trip you might imagine. It’s all waiting for the whitewater enthusiast, the naturalist and the family who just wants to play.
The Alabama River, Coosa River, Tensaw River, Tennessee River, Cahaba River, and other Alabama rivers, the Mobile-Tensaw delta; and Terrapin and Hatchett and Weogufka Creeks comprise the main waterways of the trail. They offer access to big cities and small towns and a way of life that hasn’t existed for many years. Paddle Alabama on your next vacation! Explore Alabama lakes and the Alabama delta! Get your canoe, kayak or powerboat out on Alabama’s rivers and return to nature like you’ve never seen it. We also occasionally sponsor an Alabama triathlon, which is a can't-miss opportunity for adventure seekers.
