The inaugural trip on the Ohio River Recreation Trail came through Madison last Saturday as it headed for its Louisville destination. The initiative has been undertaken by members of Louisville’s River City Paddlesports and Cincinnati’s Paddlefest organizers to support and encourage people to explore the Ohio River from water, or land, and to find recreational adventure locally. The Inaugural Ohio River Recreational Trail Paddling and Cycling Adventure began June 1 in Portsmouth, Ohio, and ended June 9 in Louisville. To support users of the trail, the Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana Regional Council of Governments (OKI) has been developing the Digital Guide to the Ohio, a GIS-based online mapping system that will help paddlers, power boaters, cyclists and even motorists plan multiday adventures in and along the Ohio. Phase one of the guide should be available to the public later this month. For more information, go to http://bit.ly/afloatontheohio (Photos submitted by Nina Campbell)
