Visit the Water Trail

Stretching approximately 65 miles to the Cacapon River’s confluence with the Potomac, the Cacapon River Water Trail offers paddlers a rich and varied paddling experience. Along the way you will see abundant wildlife, bucolic farmland, and breathtaking cliffs and rock formations. The Water Trail passes through the most biodiverse watershed of the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay tributaries, giving paddlers a rare glimpse into large intact forest blocks all but lost in many other places. Bring your binoculars to view a large variety of birds and mammals, and your fly rod to fish one of the best bass fisheries in the state.
