In our efforts to provide a world-class experience to visitors of The Parklands, 21st Century Parks worked with web developers OOHology to update the CFS indicator (cubic feet/second) featured on the home page of theparklands.org. Visitors planning a paddling trip within The Parklands can now see a live feed of water flows at three USGS gauge locations – Pewee Valley, Fisherville and Mt. Washington.
Pewee Valley Gauge - North Beckley Paddling Access to Creekside Paddling Access in Beckley Creek Park
Fisherville Gauge - Creekside Paddling Access in Beckley Creek Park to Seaton Valley Paddling Access in Turkey Run Park
Mt. Washington Gauge - Seaton Valley Paddling Access in Turkey Run Park to Cliffside Paddling Access in Broad Run Park
While each of these gauges lie outside of Parklands’ property, they provide information that, when combined with safety tips and recommendations, can help visitors plan a safe, enjoyable paddling adventure.
Canoeing and kayaking can be dangerous. The Parklands of Floyds Fork does not maintain the water trail, so we ask that you please paddle at your own risk. Always be aware of your surroundings, weather, water levels and be prepared to self-rescue.
If you are new to paddling or The Parklands, please consider taking an instructional course or exploring with an experienced friend. For additional recommendations, maps, route descriptions and more, please visit www.theparklands.org/paddling.
