Paradise Coast Blueway

Welcome to the official site for the Paradise Coast Blueway, Collier County's Paddling Trail. A network of paddling routes along the extensive coastline, the trail leads kayakers and canoers on an exciting journey from the cypress, through the mangroves and out to the edge of the Gulf of Mexico utilizing GPS waypoints. Phase 1, the Ten Thousand Islands section of the Blueway, begins in Everglades City, at the northwestern tip of Everglades National Park’s Wilderness Waterway trail, and ends at the village of Goodland on Marco Island. There are six day trip trails as well as one long trail route in Phase 1. Eventually, with the completion of Phases 2 the Paradise Coast Blueway will provide routes through the northern border of Collier County in Bonita Springs. 

Thanks to the Paradise Coast Paddling Club for all of their volunteer hours and efforts during trail testing and mapping of the Blueway!
