CANOE ACCESS SITE:
On May 30, 2007, Mayor Jerry Abramson opened a new six-mile "water trail" that begins in Miles Park.  Information about this paddlesport facility for canoes and kayaks is posted on a kiosk in the parking lot, near the back of the park.  Read the press release about the canoe access sites, or view a map of the water trail (1.6 MB PDF file) that was produced by students at Eastern High School.

The main water trail leads to the Fisherville canoe launch, though Metro Parks does not maintain the route. A minimum flow of 200 cubic feet per second is recommended for kayaking and canoeing. The address is 14520 Old Taylorsville Road.
