Rivanna River Water Trail - Albemarle and Fluvanna Counties, Virginia
Rivanna River Water Trail
The Rivanna River, a designated Commonwealth of Virginia Scenic River, flows through Albemarle and Fluvanna Counties to the James River, a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay. Beginning in Charlottesville, the 38 mile Rivanna River Water Trail gives you the chance to explore this historic landscape by canoe or kayak. In the land that Thomas Jefferson once roamed, you can still view sites along the river with which he was associated. A water trail map and guide is available from the Rivanna Conservation Society.

Please note that boating, canoeing, kayaking and other activities on rivers can be dangerous. Obtain a water trail map and guide and navigational maps in advance, plan your trip, and follow all safety precautions.

Hours: Launch sites are open all day, spring through fall. Do not go on the river during flooding or high water.
Fees: There are no fees for launch site use. The Rivanna River Water Trail map and guide may be purchased from the Rivanna Conservation Society.
