Kentucky whitewater, Glenn's Creek

Woodford county, Kentucky 1685 bridge to Distillery Pool section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-III     3 miles
I'm headed out to run Glenn's Creek in Frankfort, KY. She sure does look like a beauty.
Love the land you tred upon. Says J. Monarch

The put-in location is a reasonable drive from Frankfort, as you can see on the road map further down. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Kentucky tend to be more forgiving than the national average, so keep in mind that many of the rivers in this state are not very demanding. This river system
    has a few good paddling sections and the Kentucky 1685 bridge to Distillery Pool section is one of them. This section of Glenn's Creek in Kentucky is 3 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class II-III section.
There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. There are many good hotels to choose from, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. A bit of exercise and just being out on the river for a while will make you glad you came. This is a bit of a short stretch so better bring some good walking shoes. The wonderful Woodford County scenery and the playfulness of the water make the trip here worthwhile.
