Thanks for sharing your ideas and experiences during the inventory and analysis phase.
The Mobile County Blueway project team is just about finished sorting through the many ideas shared through the Phase 1A Survey and interactive mapping exercises.
In the Fall, we’ll be creating opportunities for the community to share their stories and ideas on several areas throughout Mobile County that are potential Blueway trail sites.
Your insights combined with the research and engineering analysis the Mobile Blueway Project team has been gathering will help Mobile County identify and create opportunities to improve paddling experiences throughout the county.

And rightly so – with over 412 square miles of water to explore, Mobile County is a paddler’s dream!
From the Delta to the Gulf, along rivers, creeks, and lakes in the county and through our city, we have a paddle trail for every skill, passion, and adventure.
Our culture and heritage are found in these waters: they connect us to places, people, and incredible natural diversity, and they are a gateway to knowing who we are and passing that knowledge onto future generations.
Thank you to the Mobile community for your help in identifying places and opportunities for improving paddling experiences throughout the county.
During this phase we’ll create a comprehensive Mobile County Blueway Masterplan from the insights gathered in Phase 1A.
This is where the plan comes to life with improved access to paddling sites throughout Mobile County.
Blueway trails are ideally designed to provide access for non-motorized boats to marked routes on navigable waterway such as rivers, lakes, canals and coastlines for recreational use. Blueway trails not only require suitable access points and take-outs for exit, but also seek to provide places ashore to camp and picnic, and other facilities for boaters.
The county-wide blueway trail system master plan project is sponsored by Mobile County and funded through a RESTORE Act grant and sponsored by the United States Treasury in cooperation with the State of Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.
