Great Lakes Water Trails

What is a Water trail?

A water trail is a route along a river or across other bodies of water such as a lake or salt water for people using small bleachable boats like kayaks, canoes, day sailors or rowboats. Water trails are most often identified by the land facilities that support water travel. These include launch and landing sites (we call these trailheads), campsites, rest areas, and other points of interest. On land, trails have distinct treads or walkways; on water it’s the entire water surface, a surface that is constantly changing with flow, tide, current, boat wakes, and wind. – Description from the Washington Water trails Association.
