Twenty-five miles of Green River and six miles of Nolin River flow through Mammoth Cave National Park. Green River has an average width of 75 feet, and an average depth of 10 feet with holes of 30 feet. Shallows, sandbars, islands, and subsurface springs are numerous. The rivers are suitable for all levels of canoeists. No scouting or portages are required.
The Green River through Mammoth Cave National Park is one of the finest family oriented canoeing streams in the state of Kentucky. Nature has taken its course along the Green River and has reclaimed the environmental conditions of 200 years ago. Canoers can expect to encounter deer, beaver, fox, bobcat, wild turkey, a large variety of birds, and fish such as muskie, small mouth bass, and catfish.
