A ribbon cutting was held for the Green and Nolin Rivers Blueway National Water Trail on Friday, June 3rd at Green River Ferry in Mammoth Cave National Park. The Green and Nolin Rivers Blueway was officially designated as a National Water Trail by Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland in June 2021; however, due to due to COVID-19 restrictions, the park was unable to hold an in-person event to formally recognize the national trail achievement until now.
In addition, Edmonson County now has twelve new directional signage markers that indicate canoe and kayak launch ramps for the Brownsville, Lock 6 Green River, Nolin Tailwater, and Houchin Ferry access points.
"The ribbon cutting ceremony for the Green & Nolin Rivers Blueway (National Water Trail) just happens to coincide with the Edmonson County Tourist Commission receiving permit approval to place wayfinding signage at our local launch points," said Edmonson County Tourism Director Vanessa Ulm.
"This signage will direct kayak and canoe enthusiasts taking one of the 18 trips down the Blueway to the correct launch location. It has taken nearly a year to see the wayfinding signage project come to fruition, but regulation signage for locals and tourists seeking adventure on our waterways is essential for a Trail Town. Our county is a hub for those seeking outdoor adventures, especially paddlers, so we are proud to be a part of Kentucky's first designated Blueway. We offer a heartfelt thank every to every single person and entity involved in helping this become a reality."
