Kayaking This is a great trip from the Paintsville lake spillway to the old water plant in Paintsville. If the water level is extremely low you will run into a few places where you may have to get out of your kayak. There is a 4' wall behind Foothills telephone where you will want to get out and walk around the drop off. Show more
