Bartram Canoe Trail

The Mobile-Tensaw Delta is our nation’s second largest river delta. It encompasses a 10 mile-wide marsh, cypress-tupelo swamp and bottomland hardwood ecosystem. The delta has over 50 rare and endangered plant and animal species known to inhabit its wetlands and waterways. The Bartram Canoe Trail system provides opportunities for recreational boaters, specifically canoes and kayakers, to enjoy the rivers, streams,lakes sloughs and bayous and overnight trails as well as two land-based and four floating platform campsites. The Bartram Canoe Trail was established to mark the water route traveled by William Bartram, a naturalist and explorer who traveled extensively throughout north Baldwin County between 1773 and 1778. His illustrated journals inspired so many Bartram Trails that it would take a lifetime to visit all of them either walking, paddling or by airboat.
