River Description

This run requires a local guide due to its unique hazards and should only be attempted by a team of experts. 

Hite Creek is a short urban run located in Northeast Louisville.  It is primarly known for it's 12' waterfall, tunnels and poor water quality.   Hazards include: I-75 tunnel, golf cart bridge, subdivision tunnel,utility pipes, and wood.  A water waste treatment plant is located just upstream of the I-75 tunnel.  Hite flows through a subdivision after passing under I-75.  Please stay in your boat and do not trespass on private property. 

The run in the video below is discribed by a local kayaker as, "I think it was about as high as you would want to run it, could just get under the cart path bridges and the tunnel you had maybe 1 foot or so with the waves. "
