Part of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Upper Green River "Blue Water Trail." See website below for more info: http://fw.ky.gov/navigation.aspx?cid=920&navpath=C117C854 This section of river features many flowing shoals and long deep pools interspersed with enough riffles to make the paddling interesting, but still suitable for families and beginners. The best water levels to paddle the upper Green for casual floating are from 150 to 500 cfs (cubic feet per second) of flow from the Green River Lake Dam. The flow grows a little swift above 500 cfs and local outfitters recommend against floating if the flow from the dam is above 1,000 cfs. Go to the Louisville District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers website at www.lrl.usace.army.mil/, and click on the “Recreation” tab and then the “Lake Levels” tab. You will see a chart showing the outflow from Green River Lake Dam. Roachville Ford is reached by traveling north from the recreation area on KY 55 to KY 1701 (Roachville Road, also known as Miller Chapel Road). The road to the ford lies unmarked and on the left (coming from KY 55) in the middle of a sharp right-hand turn. If you reach Miller Chapel, you’ve missed it. Roachville Ford is on right side of the river (looking downstream) at the head of a long riffle..
