Rockcastle Trip

Posted by Spalding Hurst

October 10, 2005

Canoeing, Kayaking, Camping

Canceled due to lack of water, but we hope to reschedule this for November.

This is a trip for anybody of any level.  It will be in honor of Jay’s 31st birthday.  The Rockcastle is an amazing and beautiful place.  If you haven’t been you should really check out this Kentucky jewel.

It’s a 16 mile run that we will cover in 2 days.  Day 1 consisting of calm class I water, great scenery and a cool night camping.  Day 2 will have the whitewater and the excitement.  Class II and III drops through an awesome gorge. The Rockcastle is hella fun through here!


You can choose to run only day one stuff and/or you can give the narrows a try.  We’ll be taking canoes and kayaks.  Maybe we’ll even give the raft a try if we can squeeze it through.  They don’t call it the narrows for nothing. If you have been watching this website, seeing us do these paddling trips and wishing you had joined in, this is the time join us. The Rockcastle is my favorite place and it is close to home. Only 2 ½ hours away.

Go to the forum and let us know that you want to go to the Rockcastle in honor of Jay’s 35th birthday.
