What to Expect

This flatwater trip is primarily rural in nature. Woody debris and fallen trees are common through this section, especially at lower water levels. This trip can be combined with other sections for excellent overnight and weekend camping trips. 

Access
Put in:
Brazelmans Bridge Road River Access and Parking Area
 3720 Brazelmans Bridge Road, Newberry, SC 29178
Access Details

The landing is downstream of Brazelmans Bridge Road, river-left. Directional signage from the road will lead you to a small parking area and concrete boat ramp. More information.

Take out:
Keitts Bridge Landing at Maybington Road River Access and Parking Area
 2-50 Enoree Trail, Newberry, SC 29108
Access Details

Keitts Bridge Landing is downstream of the Maybinton Road bridge, river-right. The drive to the landing connects to the highway on the upstream right side. Drive under the bridge to a small clearing. This is the last take out before the Eonree's confluence with the Broad River. The next take out is Strother Landing on the Broad River. More information.

Trip Details

The take out is only 10 minutes away from the put in making shuttling cars quick and easy. The scenery for this trip is primarily forested, although paddlers may see some areas of wetlands and marsh, especially in winter months when there are not many leaves on the trees. The take out is the only bridge after putting in the river, so paddlers will easily be able to find it. Take out is upstream of the bridge, river right.

Ran this on 05.28.2020. River level and flow were up and right at the max suggested CFS. We hit one MASSIVE log jam about halfway through this run. Evidently it has gotten really bad after the rains a week ago. Fortunately we were able to portage around about 75 yards and continue on. There were a good many trees to keep you paddling side to side to get around but that's part of the fun. The log jam was not fun with the increased flow. The gauge on the Enoree at Whitmire measured 934CFS & 18FT. Definitely the most water I've ever had on a trip down the Enoree. I'd recommend a little less of both of those. Trip took 3hrs, log jam was right at the entrance to horseshoe bend at 34.413610 & -81.501838. Portage was to the left bank looking downstream. I hung a streamer of pink flagging.

This was a nice stretch. We kayaked on May 19, 2019 and while there were some log jams none of them required portage around. We ended up lifting the kayaks over the logs.
