Rating: Beginner, Medium and Small River, Low Flow, 7 miles, Leisurely Pace
This 7 mile out and back trip will be good for beginners through advanced paddlers. This trip may be cancelled or rescheduled due to high or fast moving waters on the Kentucky or the Dix River.
Paddle past Shaker Landing, under High Bridge, take a right on the Dix River. Paddle about 2.5 miles up the Dix until you come to where the pool of the Kentucky River runs out and there is a small rapid. At the rapids we can take a break and have a picnic.
This trip is very scenic with lots of palisades, a waterfall and at this time of year many birds are building nests and butterflies may be plentiful.
It is possible to also see otter, beaver, deer, turkey, turtles, large fish in the clear waters near the rapids, butterflies and colorful birds. We will start at the High Bridge boat ramp past Wilmore. Rentals may be available (more on this later).
