Paddle

A coalition of federal, state and private agencies have officially launched a new website for the Southeast Coast Saltwater Paddling Trail (SECT): www.secoastpaddlingtrail.com.

First introduced at the East Coast Paddlesports and Outdoor Festival, the new SECT website will be the primary source for all-inclusive information on navigating the coastal water trails of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. Featuring detailed maps that highlight access sites, lodging and supply centers, paddlers can now travel an unbroken trail of tidal marshes and rivers more than 760 miles along the coasts of all four states.

To create this one-stop tool for boaters, the National Park Service’s Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance Program (RTCA) teamed up with a number of agencies, including the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation, South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, Georgia Department of Natural Resources, The Conservation Fund, the Coastal Regional Commission of Georgia, the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission and the Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission.

The partners of the SECT are especially grateful to Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission and S.C. Department of Natural Resources for spotlighting the new SECT website at the Paddlesports Festival.
