The following is the information regarding the field trips to the Kentucky River Drainage.

We will be offering 2 trips to the Kentucky River drainage. On Saturday Matt De La Vega will be guiding a trip to the Forks of the Kentucky River. You will go to locations on the South Fork, Middle Fork, and some tributaries. On Sunday, Matt will be guiding a trip to the Red River Gorge to sample the Red River and some of its tribs. If you are heading North or North East, you may want to visit the Red River Gorge on Sunday.
