The Ohio River Digital Guide, Orientation Maps, and Navigation Charts
The Ohio River Recreational Trail Committee and OKI are developing an Ohio River Digital Guide that is scheduled to be published in late 2019. The Guide will be an interactive tour of paddle sports, bicycle sports, and all other recreational vehicles, to the Ohio River corridor.
The Guide will be interactive when your cellular service is turned on, allowing you to follow yourself in a boat or on a bicycle as you travel down the river. It will contain safety information, accurate commercial channels, as well as lodging, restaurants, cultural activities, and historical sites. The Guide is patterned after the Ohio River Paddlefest Digital Guide: click here to view the 9 miles of the annual Paddlefest route.
Below is a Google Earth view of the 2019 Voyageur Canoe adventure sponsored by River City Paddlesports and REI. Scroll down further to view the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Navigation Charts for the 250 miles that will be included in the Ohio River Recreational Trail.
