Trip Dates: January 18, 2012
Nearest City: Bowling Green, KY
Difficulty: Moderate

Conditions were cold on the Gasper today. I have never been down this river before but I am assuming the river is a little low. Our kayaks scrapped the bottom on a few locations, but we never had to get out of the kayak.

The first part of the trip was nice with various rapids and small breaks in between. I'm not a very experienced kayaker, but I would estimate the rapids to be within class II. It was a lot of fun for the most part. During the later part of our trip the water was very flat and the scenery wasn't as nice, but still a nice winter day to be on the water.


Putting in on State HWY 626, also called Jacksons Bridge Road. Just pull off on the side of the road. We got out of the water on US 231.
