October brings the water and 2013 has already been one of the best years for whitewater ever! You can find raft rides if you'd like to brave the upper or lower Russell Fork runs. Or you can go hiking into the canyon and see the Class V drops that attract paddlers from all over the world.
Raft trips are available from three outfitters: Russell Fork Adventures (276.540.7044), Kentucky Whitewater, or Sheltowee Trace Outfitters. Tell them you heard about them from the Elkhorn City Area Heritage Council!
There aren't many better places to be than Elkhorn City on a weekend in October. Beautiful fall colors, gorgeous weather, whitewater paddlers from all over the world...and, of course, the friendliest little town around. Come on down!
