The Rockcastle on American Whitewater

I added some new pictures to the American Whitewater page for the Rockcastle. Hopefully this can better educate people running the river in the future.

The Rockcastle is a great run, it can be so many different things to paddlers. A quick class II-III day trip, a class II training ground when the lake is up, an over night expedition trip, a class III+ run when you hit the narrows hard at a higher level and include the Beech Narrows or a flat water paddle if you run it above the highway 80 bridge or takeout at Bolt House road. Plus the scenery is awesome.

The point is, don’t sleep on the Rockcastle. It’s a gold mine for Kentucky paddlers.
