Susquehanna River Water Trail - Lower Section
From Harrisburg to Havre de Grace, this 65 mile stretch of the Susquehanna shows off the scope of this largest tributary of the Chesapeake Bay. The Lower Susquehanna Water Trail helps boaters, canoeists and kayakers explore and enjoy the river's history and scenic beauty.

This section of the Susquehanna offers a tremendous diversity of natural and built environments. From the industrial yards of Steelton to the Conejohela Flats - an internationaly renowned bird habitat - the lower section of the Susquehanna is a contrast of working river and wilderness.
