Haw River Paddle Trail


Haw River MapThe Haw River begins near the Haw River State Park, just north of Greensboro. The  water trail is first accessible to paddlers at Brooks Bridge near Gibsonville. The water trail continues through Alamance County and finally connects Jordan Lake in Chatham County. Shallow rocky sections of the river create excellent rapids for paddling. In addition to a water trail, the Haw River Land Trail currently consists of just over 20 miles of land trails following along the Haw River and overlapping with the Mountains-to-Sea Trail. Check out our listings below to plan your trip! You can also check out the Haw River Trail Association for more information.
