Ohio River Way
The Ohio River Way is a 275 mile water trail beginning in Portsmouth, Ohio and ending downstream from Louisville, Kentucky. The trail was commemoratied in 2022. After the ribbon cuting in Portsmouth, Ohio, two groups begain their 10 day journey to Loisville. In celebration of the 2022 Ohio River Challenge Paddle, the group stopped in several cities to dedicate various milemarker.
The Ohio River Way Challenge is something I've now done twice. I did the first half, Portsmouth to Cincinnati, in 2022, and I did the second half, Cincinnati to Louisville, in 2023. It is a transformative experience with great people that encourages more appreciation of the Ohio River and our region.

The Ohio River Way is grateful for our partnership with CONNEX as we work to develop a National Water Trail from Portsmouth to Louisville on and along the Ohio River. CONNEX is a model for every Ohio River community that wants to improve the health and quality of life for its residents - and attract new talent and investment. We especially appreciate the leadership of Wendi Waugh on our Board of Directors and her extra effort to host the launch of our annual Ohio River Way Challenge paddle from Portsmouth to Louisville.
