The Desmond Family Canoe Trail is the longest of its kind in the UK. Created through a privately funded youth engagement project, the trail stretches all the way from Liverpool to Goole.
The Desmond Family Canoe Trail is a five-year youth project. Covering 162 miles, the coast-to-coast canoe trail that has been created was launched in August 2019.
Our ambition with this project is to provide a variety of new and exciting ways for 16-25 year olds to connect with their local waterways. In turn we hope they will continue to protect and care for the waterways in the future.
