Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell recently designated the Bayou Teche Paddle Trail and the Huron River Water Trail as the 17th and 18th trails of the National Water Trails System.
The Bayou Têche Paddle Trail in Louisiana wanders for 135 miles through four parishes and 13 towns along a historically and culturally significant bayou.
The Huron River Water Trail is a 104-mile-long inland paddling trail allowing exploration of the river’s natural and historic resources and the communities along the river in Michigan.
The National Water Trail System is a network of national exemplary water trails that can be sustained by an ever-growing water trail community.
