This lower Mississippi River water trail is a paddling guide that was put together by River Gator, a website started to give experienced paddlers information about paddling from St. Louis to the Gulf of Mexico. This trail starts near Vidalia and takes paddlers by the Three Rivers Wildlife Management Area and the Red River National Wildlife Refuge.
The Bayou Vermilion District, Lafayette Consolidated Government, CGI and the Bayou Vermilion Preservation Association have launched a collaborative interactive online paddle trail map for that details the Bayou Vermilion Paddle Trail. This innovative tool allows paddlers and boaters to navigate points of interest along the waterway. Users can locate and identify recreation areas, boat and canoe launches, businesses and other amenities from the northernmost access point on the Bayou Vermilion District's North Landing all the way to public boat launch in the Intracoastal Canal.
