National Honor For Ala. Scenic River Trail
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - The U.S. Department of Interior has designated the Alabama Scenic River Trail as a National Recreation Trail.

Gov. Bob Riley said Monday the designation should help boost tourism.

The 631-mile trail runs from Weiss Lake on the Georgia border to Fort Morgan on Mobile Bay. The trail officially opened June 6.

Fred Couch, president of the Alabama Scenic River Trail, said being placed on the list of national trails is the highest designation a trail can get.
