Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell and Director of the National Park Service Jonathan B. Jarvis announced this week that nineteen hiking and biking trails and two water trails have been designated as national recreation trails. One of the two water trails is the Apalachicola River Blueway.

In a press release received by Pam Fuqua, Jackson County Tourist Development Council’s Executive Director, the river is described as “flowing through one of the nation’s richest hotspots of biodiversity……that flows through the heart of Old Florida, a tapestry of wild landscapes and vanishing cultures. It is a rare gem in the Florida Panhandle”.

Director Fuqua expressed her extreme satisfaction with the designation. “This shows that our part of Florida is increasingly gaining recognition with the visitors who seek out natural and exciting areas for their vacations” she said.
