Green River: Dennison Ferry to Green River Ferry Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Green is one of the most biologically rich rivers in the country, and reportedly the fourth most biologically diverse in the world. It is a place where habitats of the North meet habitats of the South.

Approximately 150 species of fish call the Green River home. The banks, alternating rock and mud, rise steeply from the water and meld into junglesque shores of thick forests. The Green River enters the park at its confluence with Cub Run, then flows through the national park for 4 miles before reaching Dennison Ferry."

I went with a group of friends to Mammoth Cave National Park and we embarked on a 7.5 mile canoe trip down the Green River. Our put-in was at Dennison Ferry and we paddled all the way to Green River Ferry. This paddle really seemed more like a float and was very fun. The wide and slow moving river is easy going and just perfect for newbies who are learning to paddle and steer canoes. If you are super experienced and hoping for a challenge then this might not be very exciting, although it is undeniably pleasant. We took our time on this float and our leisurely trip took us a little over 3 hours to get from Dennison Ferry to point Green River Ferry. The river is quite beautiful, forested on both sides. We saw lots of turtles enjoying sunshine on bits of wood in the river and several deer. Be sure to bring a camera, good sandals, sunscreen, dry clothing and a dry-bag just in case. If you want to stop somewhere for a lunch or snack break there are a couple of islands along the stretch of the river that are nice.
