The Bartram Canoe Trail is a system of canoe and kayak trails in the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta and is named for explorer and naturalist William Bartram.

The 200-mile-long trail system is one of the longest in the United States.[1] It includes bottomland hardwood swamp, creeks, side channel sloughs, lakes and backwaters. The trail system also includes Bottle Creek which is in close proximity to the Bottle Creek Indian Mounds.

The trail system is operated by the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.[2]
