The Missouri River Water Trail is an excellent online reference for experienced and wanna-be paddlers on the Big Muddy. Published by the Mo. Dept. of Natural Resources, this online resource gives paddling tips, geographic references, access points and more. The MR340 proves that a broader vision of the Missouri River as a regional as well as local transportation and adventure route is a very real possiblity.
Lifetime paddler and conservationist Greg Poleski, who has been working on the Mississippi River Water Trail Association board and on St. Louis area water trails, sees that there is more work to be done to make this Missouri River Water Trail into a powerful resource in real life. From smaller local trips, to safety and guidance signage to the linking of existing trails, Poleski is looking for other like-minded paddlers to link up and take the Water Trail to the next level. Perhaps a more formal Missouri River Paddlers Association?
Join the conversation, dream up river trail to-do lists and help Greg bump our existing water trail resources into a national treasure.
