The blueway from the Creekwalk at City Hall to Canoe Trail Park is 4 miles long and takes 2-3 hours of paddling, Treasure hunters may bring a GPS to search for the 35 geocaches hidden along the route. If floating is more your speed, you can take the lazy creek in a tube to the wooden footbridge and walk your tubes back upstream along Prattville’s Creekwalk. The cool underground-fed water and the creek’s hallway of near-touching tree canopy make for a cool and shady trip on hot days. Enjoy a picnic at the landscaped Creekwalk or visit one of the many restaurants just a short walk from the canoe trail. Stroll the creekside path and visit the Prattaugan Museum to explore the historic significance of the creek to the town. Browse unique shops and boutiques in Historic Downtown Prattville.

Plan your trip: The upper creek allows an easier paddle the begins not far above the placid mill pond that once powered Daniel Pratt’s historic factory here. A lower trip begins behind City Hall near the downtown restaurants and shops and takes out at the beach at the well-marked Canoe Trail Park. Courtesy, Alabama Scenic River Trail.
