ACA Recommended Water Trails
Share |

Starting in 2005, to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the ACA, we established the "ACA Recommended Water Trails" program. Created to showcase the best trails around the world, ACA Recommended Water Trails meet a set of basic criteria and stand out as particular good destinations for paddlers. 

To be eligible, a trail must meet the following requirements:  

  • The trail must be a contiguous or semi-contiguous waterway or series of waterways that is open to recreational use by paddlers  
  • The trail must have public access points for paddlers
  • The trail must be covered by a map, guide, signage or a web site that is of reasonable quality and detail and available to the public
  • Published or printed materials for the trail (e.g. guidebook, map, signs, website) must communicate low-impact ethics to trail users
  • The trail must be supported and/or managed by one or more organizations

ACA Recommended Water Trails earn the right to use a special ACA logo, shown above, in maps, signs and other printed material related to the trail. The ACA names new trails each year. Apply today if you would like for your Water Trail to be considered for the ACA Recommended Water Trail designation!

To apply for the ACA Recommended Water Trail designation, please contact the ACA Stewardship Coordinator
