The Tyger River joins the Broad River along this section, which is characterized by Class I-II rapids and swift moving flatwater. Primarily rural in nature, paddlers will be surrounded by densely wooded forest and see two long, forested islands along the way.
A small parking area and dirt boat ramp are located river-left.

The take out is 40 minutes away from the put in, so shuttling cars could take close to an hour and a half. After putting in at the Sandy River Landing, which is the confluence of Sandy River and Broad River, paddlers will see occasional shoals and Class I-II rapids. The two islands are 0.5 miles long and 2 miles long respectively. Paddlers should follow either side of the river around the first island, but stay to the right side of the river around the second island. After the second island, paddlers will cross under a railroad bridge, and will then see the confluence of the Tyger and Broad Rivers shortly thereafter. The take out is located 3,000 feet downstream of the Tyger/Broad River confluence, river-right.
