The water was moving steadily all day. Not many good places to take out for a break. The banks were usually too steep for an easy take out. There were 4 sections of what I'd call class II rapids. There were some good size waves that had us all nervous. 2 guys fell out on one rapid, but we managed to keep the boats above water for the rest of the trip.
A very wide river, but without the rapids, it was a little monotonous. 17 miles got to be a little long by the end. We did the trip in 6.5 hours, including breaks.
Takeout was at the Cumberland Falls parking lot.
Put-in was at Red Bird bridge, next to the church.
