Potomac River Segment Plan
As if we needed more proof the Potomac River is special, our Nation’s River is the only one in the country with three national trails running nearly the entire length of its tidal corridor:
- The Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail
- The Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail
- The Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail
The Potomac River Segment Plan outlines how the three existing trails can be enhanced to make the trails more visible, meaningful, and easier to use for the millions of people who visit the Potomac each year.
Potomac Conservancy has worked with representatives from the National Park Service, site managers, community advocates, and other stakeholders to create the plan.
We invite you to take a look, see what is coming, and discover the best ways to explore our hometown river.
