Kayak Trip Ideas
We’ve unofficially named the kayak route from Bartram Park through Project Greenshores the William Bartram Kayak Trail. This kayak trail is one of our favorite urban bayfront paddling opportunities. The trail will take you past the living shoreline site B and the original living shoreline known as Project Greenshores.
To paddle the trail the trail, launch from the small access area on the south side of the park. Paddle northeast in Pensacola Bay until you arrive at the living shoreline. We recommend you paddle on the inside of the inlets. If paddling south of the estuary, use caution as submerged breakwater can hang up a kayak at certain tides.
Once you reach Muscogee Wharf, use caution when navigating the point to access site A of Project Greenshore.
