The Desmond Family Canoe Trail

The Desmond Family Canoe Trail is the longest of its kind in the UK. A privately funded youth engagement project, spanning over 160 miles from Liverpool to Goole.

Our ambition is to provide a variety of new and exciting ways for 16 - 25 years olds to connect with their local waterways. In turn they can protect and continue to care for them. 

A range of social action projects, bespoke programmes and active engagement helps us get young people out on the water enjoying canoeing, kayaking and paddleboarding.
