An audience that filled the Trigg County Fiscal Court meeting room last Tuesday evening came mostly in support of parking areas and launching ramps for canoes and kayaks on Little River along Roaring Springs Road.

“There’s a lot of decisions to be made, a lot of determination to me made where and if we can actually put it in. We’re in the very early stages,” said Trigg County Judge Executive Hollis Alexander, who thanked everyone for their input. “Stay tuned, because this is an ongoing process.”

Recently, a landowner offered to donate land for the construction of a parking area and launching ramp in the area, which is near the Christian County line. At a previous Fiscal Court meeting, landowner Glenn Skaggs said that much of the river upstream from Ky. 272 is non-navigable.

Jeff Kempf, formerly of Little River Kayaks, was one of many people to speak last Tuesday evening. He said U.S. Army Corps of Engineers information classifies the river as navigable. He also addressed another of Skaggs’ concerns: that merely traveling on the river is trespassing.
