Water Trails

Paddlers are able to enjoy two water trails in New Buffalo:

Galien River Water Trail Sign

A map of the Galien River Water Trail is located at Red Arrow Landing and the City Boat Launch.  Kayakers can use the City Boat Launch ramps to access the Galien River; however, the City recommends using the City Beach parking lot as an access point, to lessen potential navigational conflicts with motor boaters.
