Regarding Here ends the Alabama Scenic River Trail. The Alabama Scenic River Trail is the longest and most experience-diverse river trail in America—from mountain streams to multi-class whitewater to river delta and the salty waves of the Gulf of Mexico. It is the longest river trail in a single state. It passes through the heart of Alabama from northeast to southwest and in doing so, takes boaters through a wide variety of terrain, flora and fauna.
