What is a Blueway? A Blueway or water trail is a water path or trail that's developed with launch points, camping locations, and points of interest for canoeists, paddle boarders, and kayakers.

Greene County's goal is to highlight its unique natural, cultural, and historical resources to attract new residents and visitors to the area.

What is a Greenway? A Greenway is a trail (and sometimes a wildlife corridor) found in urban and rural settings that are frequently recycledm and  were once a railway, utility, or similar right-of-way or derelict industrial land. 

Currently, Greene County is working with the National Parks Service to develop three locations on the Chickasawhay. Old Avera Landing near State Line, Leakesville Boat Ramp, and Gatlin Hills Landing at Highway 98.
