About the White River Water Trail

The WRP and its partners have been protecting and improving public access to the White River for decades. However the idea to develop a formal “water trail” grew out of recovery efforts following devastating flooding in the White River valley in August 2011.

Formed officially in 2016, the White River Water Trail is a network of designated, recreational access sites along the White River and its tributaries.

Water Trail sites may be used for many types of access, including fishing, picnics, river access, swimming, tubing/boating access, scenic views, and more. To learn more about which types of access are appropriate at each site, visit the Water Trail Sites map.

Water Trail partners include the Green Mountain National Forest, Vermont Fish & Wildlife, National Park Service RTCA ProgramVermont Housing & Conservation Board, Vermont River Conservancy, Connecticut River Paddler’s Trail, Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission, Rochester/Randolph Area Sports Trail Alliance (RASTA), watershed towns, and community volunteers.
