  1. It looked like there were rapids down through there (Google Earth), but i guess that either the water level was different in the photos v when you were there, or those “ripples” show up really well on satellite. Sounded like a cool trip and great stretch of wild river.

  2. Thanks for information that you provide on your paddling trips. My wife and I recently started kayaking and it is very helpful.

  3. I have paddled that stretch twice and I truly love it!! Last trip we saw 3 bald eagles. I was kayaking the other stretch the day y’all went. From chappels to 121. I belive I saw that land rover! Are you guys part of a local club? anyways glad to see more people kayaking up in this neck of the woods.

    Happy paddling

  5. Money was approved by state(SC) in late 2012 to construct a takeout area at the SC Hwy 39 bridge…Cannot wait to see construction begin, as it is certainly a challenge to get the kayaks out…Paddled it twice last year and hope to again when wx gets warmer…

  6. Tom, As Thomas above said, there is now a asphalt road, large paved parking area, and concrete boat ramp under Highway 39 bridge. This is as of September 2015 with entrance on southern or Saluda (town) side of 39. Very nice.

    1. We tend to paddle very leisurely. We got on the water by about 10:30 and were done by about 2:30, so 4 hours with side trips and a stop for lunch.
