Canoe Paddling Access - Turkey Run Park

The Seaton Valley Paddling Access is located at the north end of Turkey Run Park near the Seaton Valley Trailhead (13708 Seatonville Road, Louisville, KY 40291). It is approximately 3 miles from Cane Run Paddling Access in The Strand to this access in Turkey Run Park. Paddlers can take-out or put-in at Seaton Valley to continue downstream to accesses in Broad Run Park.

Mary’s Island: After Seatonville Rd. and the Seaton Valley Paddling Access, Floyds Fork splits briefly, leaving a small island in the center. The island has been named for Mary Bingham and will be used for agriculture by the property owner, Future Fund Land Trust, a 21st Century Parks land partner. At this time there is no public access to the island. When approaching the island, paddlers should use river left to continue south through Turkey Run Park.
