Ohio River Water Trail
Water trails, or blueways, embody the nexus between rivers and trails. They provide recreational boating opportunities along a river, lake, canal or coastline; most water trails are managed in public-private partnership with the philosophies of environmental stewardship, environmental education, and accessibility for all users. The National Park Service is assisting the Ohio River Trail Council to create the Ohio River Water Trail.
The Ohio River Trail Council supports Pittsburgh as a proper launch point for the Lewis and Clark National Historic (Water) Trail. The proposed Ohio River Land and Water Trails follows the route of the Lewis & Clark Expedition.
