MNRR Water Trail Logo

The Missouri National Recreational River (MNRR) Water Trail contains:

  • entire 59-mile segment of the Missouri National Recreational River (from below Gavins Point Dam to Ponca, NE)
  • an additional 20 river miles from Ponca, NE to Sioux City, IA
  • 39-mile segment of the MNRR will be added to this water trail in the future.

A water trail planning group comprised of several federal, state, local, and non-profit organizations has been formed. This group is working on improving public access to the river, compiling float trip information, creating informational brochures and signs, and building an interactive web site that can be used to plan float trips. Visit their website at www.mnrrwatertrail.org.
