Alabama Waterway Enhancement Program
The AL Waterway Enhancement Program is your organization or civic group’s chance to bring people together through paddling in your community. Organizations may be eligible for up to $5,000 in grant funding from ASRT to improve access to waterways in your area, purchase paddling and safety equipment, or organize community paddling events.
The 2024 AL Waterways Enhancement Program will open in November 2023. Learn more about the program details here!
Mile Marker Program
The Mile Marker Program is an initiative that helps make our waterways safer by creating consistent reference points for paddlers. Sets of Mile Markers are installed through partnerships with local paddling groups, emergency responders, and communities. View current mile markers on our Paddle Planner.
Signs of the Scenic Trail
Alabama Scenic River Trail has created and installed standardized destination signs for paddlers across the state. The signs are placed typically along water access points in partnership with local organizations. Each sign features a map of the waterway, interesting, and safety information.
Trail Angels are expert volunteers who offer their services to paddlers along waterways in their waterways. Whether you need help navigating dams and portages, transporting your gear and equipment, or getting directions and updated information, these local guides are on your side. When you’re planning a trip on the water and know you’ll need a helping hand to make it the best it can possibly be, contact your local Trail Angel before you go!
