A mostly isolated area, maybe 3 or 4 river houses/compounds. 3 .5 miles downstream to Sugar Creek (bottom pic) (easy to miss with the angle it comes into the river) or continue for a total of 6 miles to Dam 8 (12 miles total out and back). Seasonal waterfalls (middle pic). Can go up Sugar Creek for an extra .5 miles one way. Several rock bars along the way.
Can go upstream as well. Not as isolated.
There is another ramp directly across the river for Garrard/Madison Co access.
Best when the Lock 8 gauge is below about 13.5 feet.
