Join us as our guides lead you into the darkness of the Gorge Grotto, through the mountainside for a full hour-long adventure under the earth's surface.

"Enter an enchanted world of cliffs, caves, coves, and endless waterfalls. You’ll feel transported to Middle Earth as you explore the secluded Grayson Grotto on a stand-up paddleboard.
Tucked away among mossy sandstone cliffs is the seductive Grotto Falls on Far Clifty Creek. Keep paddling to find Craig Creek Falls, Gray Hollow Falls, Sam Carroll Falls, Stafford Creek Falls, and Lick Falls.
Behind Hidden Falls, you can paddle through a crack in the sandstone to enter a secret cove. Let your imagination run wild as you explore this surreal landscape dotted with beech and hemlock trees." -Sup Kentucky
