BLUEGRASS THIRD ANNUAL FRANKFORT FLOAT
Paddle the Kentucky River in Downtown Frankfort on July 25, 2020
Launch at 10:00 am
A great opportunity to get out of the house, be on the water and visit friends at a safe social distance. Join us for a relaxing paddle through scenic downtown Frankfort. We will launch at the Old Lawrenceburg Road Ramp upriver from downtown on Rt 420 (Old Lawrenceburg Rd) off the East-West Connector and paddle to the boat ramp at Benson Creek, a 2.8 mile trip. An additional trip up Benson Creek is also available for those who want a little more paddling. The launch site is easily accessed by taking the 127 exit (second Frankfort exit coming from Lexington on I-64) turning toward Frankfort, turning right on 676, the East-West Connector, and left on to Rt 420 just before you cross the Kentucky River.
Canoe and Kayak rental is available from Canoe Kentucky or you can bring your own canoe or kayak. Contact Canoe Kentucky directly at 502-227-4492. (There is a group rate if you let them know before July 11, you are with America’s Boating Club group). They will deliver you canoe or kayak to the launch site and pick it up at takeout.
Shuttle service will be provided to take your vehicle to the Benson Creek boat ramp prior to our departure. If you are bringing your own canoe or kayak, please be at the launch site by 9:30am to unload and transport your car to Benson Creek. If you are renting a canoe, please be there no later than 9:30am so we can transport your car to Benson Creek.
After the paddle we will gather at the Benson Creek ramp for food, fun and fellowship at a safe social distance. Please bring a chair, something to eat and your favorite beverage. Due to COVID 19, no food will be provided. To ensure there are plenty of shuttle drivers, please register for this event with Louise Lagrew at email@example.com.
