The Bayou Teche Paddle Trail project was born from the adventure race, the Tour du Teche, begun in 2010. Now an annual race attracting competitors from around the world, the first race highlighted the need for signange, access and improved water quality along the 134-mile bayou.
CCET partnered with the TECHE Project and the National Park Service for a two-year planning period to meet with community members, municipal authorities and paddling enthusiasts to develop a plan of action for a paddle trail. This plan is now complete and the organizers are now entering the implementation phase. We look forward to developing and installing signage, creating and improving access points, and establishing information kiosks along the Bayou Teche. We encourage you to get on the water and experience the peace and beauty of the Bayou Teche for yourselves!
