Water Trail

Edisto North Fork Blueway

(Orangeburg County)

TrailMap


Description:
This section of the Edisto River offers challenges for the experienced paddlers, but can be navigated by the less experienced if accompanied by at least one experienced paddler. Although, it’s been said, “If you can paddle this section, you can paddle just about any river.” There are many twists and turns, narrow passage, low trees, and when the water is low, some portage over downed logs. You may see an abundance of wildlife, but very few signs of civilization until you reach the limits of Orangeburg; one exception being the presence of aircraft from the North Airbase. There are picnic facilities at some landings and a gazebo type stop at Edisto Memorial Gardens. Insect repellant is recommended during the warm months
