Waynesboro Water Trail

Waynesboro Water Trail is the newest addition to the city's park system. The completion of the boat ramps at Ridgeview and Basic parks allow for easy access to the South River. Put in your canoe or kayak at Ridgeview Park and paddle the scenic four-mile stretch of the South River to the convenient take-out at Basic Park. Shorter trips can be taken by, if desired, by utilizing other river accesses along the water trail. This stretch of the river is perfect for beginners or those looking for an easy paddle. Paddlers can expect to encounter class I and class II rapids along the way and enjoy a different perspective of this river city.
