While you won’t find much white water in Mississippi, you will encounter some beautiful scenery and plentiful wildlife if you choose to canoe or kayak one of our waterways.  Many creeks, streams and rivers in the Mississippi Delta are lined by deep woods with large trees that are home to a variety of plant and animal life. Birding from a kayak or canoe can take on an entirely new dimension. Paddle Mississippi, discover a new perspective on our region.

 

Through a Walton Family Foundation grant, Mississippi’s Lower Delta Partnership has been able to explore, map and share with you the following paddling trails:
