Corsica River Water Trails

Corsica River Water Trails


Public Corsica River water access in the Town of Centreville is provided by:

  • Centreville Wharf : located on Watson Road, is operated by the Town of Centreville. The wharf complex includes: a soft launch, for non-motorized vessels like kayaks and canoes, boat slips, fishing area, playground equipment, picnic tables and a parking lot for cars only.

All of the Corsica River water trails start from the soft launch at Centreville Wharf. These trails provide water recreation opportunities for paddlers of all abilities. Novice paddlers or those seeking a leisurely experience will enjoy exploring the Mill Stream and Yellow Bank Stream trails. These routes follow slowly meandering waterways which pass through low marshes and are sheltered from extreme winds and currents. More experienced paddlers can take on the challenge of open water and longer distance offered by the Corsica River and Alder Branch Trail.

The wharf and landing areas can get very busy during the boating season. Have all of your gear ready and be courteous to others as you prepare to launch. Changing winds, currents and tides can result in hazardous conditions for paddlers. Be sure to check conditions before you launch since these factors may impact the route and direction that you paddle.
