Development of sea kayaks has spawned the exploration of the Potomac below Washington by small, people-powered boats. The Potomac Water Trail, still in development, is a series of access points and camping areas along the entire river. Currently the trail runs south along the Virginia shoreline to Pohick Bay and returns on the Maryland shoreline.

A digital version of the map of the Potomac River Water Trail is available from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources at this link.
