Discover Texas Rivers

At TRPA, we believe that the best solutions concerning problems with our streams in Texas often involve citizen education. We’ve seen over and over that experiencing the magic of floating on a river helps people to better understand why we need to protect these rivers for future generations. Of the 23 major river basins of Texas, we are highlighting fifteen favorites and an assortment of coastal paddling trails to choose from. With that, we encourage you to find a Texas river to enjoy, whether it’s exciting whitewater or tranquil quiet water.

These descriptions, maps and paddling trails are intended as a starting point and are not a fully inclusive list of good places to paddle. We hope to expand the descriptions in the future.
