Alabama Bureau Of Tourism

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 5000 miles of accessible waterways on over 43 waterways with over 40 outfitters and adventure services to serve and assist you. We have 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. 

Additionally, feel free to check our Alabama outfitters to find out more about what you may need to canoe Alabama or rent a boat for a boat vacation in Alabama!

We are also available for you while you're on your journey! We provide Alabama River help -- if you're traveling and need a boat or gear, if you want to try a different boat or gear, or you need a guide or transportation, visit any of the helpful outfitters and Trail Angels along the way.

Kayak trips return to Little River Canyon in March
Mar 22, 24-26
FORT PAYNE, Ala. – The Little River Canyon National Preserve has released dates for upcoming paddle trips to take place in the backcountry portion of the preserve. This section of Little River has easy paddling with level one and two rapids.

The popular paddle trips will be led by National Park Ranger Larry Beane.

The first scheduled trip will be Saturday, March 4. Other dates for the paddle trips are tentatively scheduled for March 6, 8, 9, 14, 22, 24-26, weather permitting.

The park is planning to provide free shuttle service for these events. Paddlers will need to bring their own kayak/canoe, paddle, life preservers, food, water, hat and sunscreen. For those without equipment, the park has six kayaks, paddles and lifejackets available for public use. To reserve these kayaks, get your reservations in early.

A dry suit, wetsuit, splash jacket, and warm change of clothes may be needed, depending on weather, especially on the early trips. Weather and water levels may require rescheduling of trips.
Space is limited to 20 paddlers/boats for each trip, so please call the National Park Service office at (256) 845-9605 or email Ranger Beane to RSVP. Although the program is free, RSVP is required. Time and meeting place will be given upon registration.
Park Superintendent Steve Black invites you to come enjoy this free program. For more information, call (256)845-9605.
