The best option for those really looking for whitewater is to just head to Frank E.Simon Park, where a minor ledge creates tame play opportunities.
I can only speak for the Shepherdsville area, but would not recommend getting on below about 1.6 on the gauge as things get very shallow below that.
Tell us about this gauge by leaving a comment.
Permits are not required for this reach.
We have no additional detail on this route.

If someone gets hurt on a river, or you read about a whitewater-related injury, please report it to
American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
