Potomac Water Trail

Development of sea kayaks has spawned the exploration of the Potomac below Washington by small, people-powered boats. The Potomac Water Trail, still in development, is a series of access points and camping areas along the lower river. Currently the trail runs south along the Virginia shoreline to Pohick Bay and returns on the Maryland shoreline. To download a scanned copy of the map of the Lower Potomac, select this link.
