There is something for every skill level:
Johnson Springs to Munfordville (4miles/3hours): On their most popular ½ day trip you can choose to picnic at Green River Park & Arboretum in Munfordville at the end of your trip or try the optional walking trail between JS and Munfordville if you prefer walking to paddling.
Rio to Johnson Springs (8miles/4 hours): This is a nice laid-back canoe or kayak trip or good fishing trip with lots of history.Daniel Boone's son is buried in Johnson Springs, and Civil War enthusiasts will love paddling past General Buckner's farm.
Rio to Munfordville (12 miles/6 hours): Combine the 2 trips above.
Lynn Camp to Munfordville (24 miles/12 hours): This is their most popular camping trip with a nice secluded gravel bar to camp. You'll pass the famous 300 Springs waterfalls (local folks and people from across the U.S. come just to see 300 Springs). Or shorten the trip to Lynn Camp to end at Rio, a good day trip (6 hours) if you don't want to camp.
Munfordville to Dennison's Ferry (21 miles/12 hours): Camping Trip. Always a nice trip to be able to go to Mammoth Cave National Park. Bluffs get tall down toward cave; the river narrows some;and there is good fishing (no license required in the park).
Munfordville to Green River Ferry (29 miles/15 hours): This camping trip also goes through Mammoth Cave National Park. It is a more populated river trip with a couple of caves on the side of the river, past famous Green River Ferry.
