New National Water Trails System Website Rolled Out
You can now experience the new National Water Trails System through an
interactive website that connects users to rivers and waterways through
stories and tools.
Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar announced the new National Water
Trails System in February 2012, with the objective of creating a national
network of exemplary water trails that are cooperatively supported and
sustained. Nine National Water Trails have been designated across the United
The Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance program and the Denver
Service Center are continuing work on "Call to Action" item 12, "Follow the
Flow," by partnering to develop the new website, which will improve
communication with current and potential water trail managers and with
recreational trail users.
Water trail managers can apply for designation through an easy online
application, and visitors can learn more about designated trails through a
photo gallery, dynamic stories, and videos. An interactive map and new
search functions make it easy for users to find national water trails
throughout the country.
Visit the new site at www.nps.gov/watertrails.
