Augusta's River Levee Trail offers a paved 2-mile route along the the Savannah River, which divides Georgia from South Carolina, and is flanked by woodlands. Although the trail parallels the Riverwatch Parkway, it is comfortably seperated from the roadway by a wide, landscaped median.
Highlights of the pathway include the Civil-War-era Rea's Creek Aqueduct on the northern end of the trail and a pair of bridges, one of which is a 200-foot cable suspension bridge with spectacular views of the river and the downtown skyline.
For a longer journey, travelers can cross the Augusta Canal to reach the Augusta Canal Trail at the Lake Olmstead Trailhead.
On the north end of the trail, parking and restrooms are available at the Lake Olmstead Trailhead (1 Milledge Road, Augusta). To access the River Levee Trail from the trailhead, cross the bridge over the Augusta Canal.
