Choose from Three Options

  • $29 for a two-hour Freebird canoe trip for two (a $25 value per person) with lunch (a $5 value per person; a $60 total deal value)
  • $55 for the above trip with lunch for four (a $120 value)
  • $79 for the above trip with lunch for six (a $180 value)

The 5-mile trip’s name—Freebird—is an amalgam of its start point, the Freewill Baptist Church, and its endpoint, Redbird. Dotted with rapids, the river offers tree-lined banks with sporadic shade and occasional deep pools where paddlers can stop to take a dip. The unguided trip is appropriate for all ages and skill levels. For more information, see the Freebird trip description.

Sheltowee Trace Outfitters

Sheltowee Trace Outfitters’ founder, Rick Egedi, has navigated Kentucky’s waters since 1981. At his adventure center, he and his staff lead guided trips on area rivers, such as the Big South Fork of the Cumberland River. Canoers, whitewater rafters, and tubers can float through placid, sun-dappled segments or conquer frothing rapids; alternatively, shorter trips ferry adventurers straight to the foot of the Cumberland Falls, where they can feel the waterfall’s spray and see that, despite conspiracy theories, it is not just water descending an escalator.

For landlubbers, the center’s activities range from trips up a climbing wall to geocaching excursions, on which visitors prowl through the surrounding greenery on a tech-savvy scavenger hunt using GPS tracking to turn up hidden caches of trinkets. During multiday outdoor trips, visitors can spend the night in nearby lodgings, such as quaint cabins and campgrounds, rather than sleeping atop nature’s waterbed—the puddle.
