Paddling Pennsylvania’s aquatic highways
Do you want to combine water, good food, recreation, open space, history, culture, scenic beauty and geology into a one-day trip? We have you covered. Set your canoe or kayak on one of Pennsylvania’s water trails. These trails are boat routes suitable for canoes, kayaks and small, motorized watercraft. Like conventional trails, water trails are recreational corridors between specific locations. Water trails are comprised of access points, boat launches, day-use sites, and, in some cases, overnight camping areas. From ripples to rapids, paddling these aquatic highways can be a great adventure. And don’t forget about fishing opportunities. Most of these trails boast of great fisheries and easy access to the water.
