We have never needed outdoor activities more than now, and the Green River is becoming a favorite escape for many. Our most popular local trip on the Green is Johnson Springs (Harry Wilson Park) to Munfordville. The journey is 4 river miles and depending on the water level and how hard you paddle, it can take a few hours or the entire day. Along the way you’ll find the Wilkerson blue hole as well as a sand bar. They are both great places to disembark and rest for awhile. This option is described on Kentucky’s Department of Fish & Wildlife’s website, here.
This float makes a good starting place for many new to paddling or just new to the Green. As the Ky Dept of Fish & Wildlife states, we are “well known for the scenic views, numerous springs/caves and abundance of wildlife making this section of the river a popular retreat for anglers and boaters.”
Please spend some time learning about water safety and wear a personal floatation device. Water safety resources are plentiful here. And there’s even a nifty free course to take before you head out here.
If you try these four miles and decide you are ready for a longer distance paddle, there are two more options here:
