I have been wanting to kayak on the Kentucky River for a few years now, but for one reason or another I just never got around to doing it. But if I'm honest, it's probably due to not knowing how quick or strong the river current was and how much debris I would have to paddle around. But I did it and am so glad I did! Not only was the current extremely slow, there was truly no debris. This makes for one nice float. And to top that off, the stretch between the park and Proud Mary's BBQ (take-out), is absolutely gorgeous.
But now I know that I love kayaking the Kentucky River. I hope that if you haven't and been thinking of doing it that you try this stretch. You will love it! Please wear you PFD at all times when floating. Take some water with you and maybe even a little snack. But most of all have fun and #optoutside!
