Water Trail Maps
Chesapeake Bay Gateways Network

Think of it. More than 150 major rivers and thousands of streams flow into the Chesapeake Bay. And then there's the 180 mile long Bay itself. How did people get around for centuries? By water. Today you can explore the Bay in the same way, along a growing series of water trails - boating or paddling routes along the Bay and its tributaries. Many have detailed maps and guides to assist you in planning an adventure. Click on any product title for more information.
