Get Outside!

Clean water is fun for everyone! Check out CWEP’s interactive map to find and visit waterways near you:

Blue pins represent access points for swimming, paddling, boating, or other direct water access

Green pins represent access to greenways, walkways, trails, or other walking access near a waterway

There are lots of fun ways to engage with our waterways!

  • Greenways are great for walking, jogging, and biking.
  • Your town may have dedicated mountain biking trails, which can be fun for the whole family! Check out your town website or the Mountain Bike Project for more info.
  • County Parks may offer kayak or canoe rentals, which is a great way to see aquatic wildlife up close.
  • If you’re interested in birding, apps like MerlinBirdID or iNaturalist can help you identify birds by photo or sound recording.
  • For more information on boating access, visit the NC Wildlife Resources Commission website.
  • Ranger programs at County and State Parks can help you connect with your local history and wildlife!

Check the town or park website for information on parking, fees, operating hours, and any additional info you may need. Fishing often requires a license or permit. Please check and adhere to any posted rules and practice safe recreation behavior!
