The Story of The Scenic River Trail By Jennifer Kornegay
This network of rivers is the longest such trail contained in a single state in the country, and it begins at the Georgia state line on the Coosa River. It winds its way south to the Tallapoosa River, then to the Alabama River, crossing nine lakes along the way, and terminating at Ft. Morgan in the Gulf of Mexico. In all, the Trail covers over 1,000 miles of water and is welcoming visitors from across the state and across the country.
