North Fork of Elkhorn Creek: Georgetown to Forks of Elkhorn Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The North Fork of Elkhorn Creek flows through Scott County and is runnable from late fall to late spring from Georgetown downstream. Several dams in the Georgetown vicinity create pools that permit the paddling of certain two- to four-mile stretches year-round. By and large, the North Fork winds through rolling farmland.

The most popular run on the North Fork begins at the covered bridge near Switzer and terminates at the confluence of the North and South Forks. In this stretch, the stream grows progressively rockier, and many small ledges and rapids appear (all Class I). Access is good all along the North Fork. Dangers to navigation include dams (as mentioned) that must be portaged and deadfalls. The dam just above KY 1688 has washed out and is now runnable. The level of difficulty is Class I throughout, the average width is 35–40 feet and access is excellent."
