A 16-mile kayaking and canoeing trip down the North Fork of the Kentucky River is set for Saturday morning.
Headwaters Inc. is organizing the trip from Whitesburg to Blackey. Participants are to meet at 9:30 a.m. on May 11 at River Park in Whitesburg.
The trip is expected to take about six or seven hours. Participants are asked to bring their canoe or kayak as well as their own food, water and sunscreen.
Headwaters Inc. is working on developing river trails in the area and this trip will help Headwaters Inc. pick sites for put-ins and takeouts, locate problematic sections if any and assess the size of the litter problem.
