What to Expect

The Enoree River passes through the small town of Whitmire along this trip, though it is primarily rural in nature. After the bridge at Whitmire, the environment quickly becomes more like wilderness. This flatwater trip is great for beginners. During lower water, paddlers will need to navigate around shallow sand bars and fallen trees. This trip can be combined with other sections for excellent overnight and weekend camping trips. 

Access
Put in:
Forest Service 339 Landing River Access and Parking Area
 FS 339 Road, Whitmire, SC 29178
Access Details

This landing is located 1 mile upstream of the US-176 and SC-72/121 bridge at Whitmire, and has parking and a small beach. From Lee Cemetery Road, turn west onto FS-339 and continue to the landing, which is located river-left. The landing is not well marked from the river. Visit the Forest Service website for more information.

Take out:
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. Visit the Forest Service website for more information.

Trip Details

The take-out is a 20 minute drive from the put-in, so shuttling cars may take around 45 minutes. Primarily rural in nature, this flatwater trip crosses under only 2 bridges (1 railroad bridge and the Highway 176 bridge) before the take out.

My son and I went on a day trip on this section of the river yesterday, April 7, 2021 (FS 339 Road to Brazleman's Bridge Landing). The weather couldn’t have been nicer and the rivers water flow (CFS) was showing at 552. While there were no log jams that required portage, there were a couple of spots where the trees in the water made for narrow navigation and if the water was any lower it might cause portage. We got to see beavers, river otters, ducks, deer and lots of butterflies. It was a great trip! Very beautiful river!!

We went on a overnight trip on this section of the river this weekend, May 18 - 19, 2019. There are a couple of log jams that you will be able to go over. Also there is a large log jam about a mile from Brazzleman's Bridge. It will require portage! We went up the bank on the left side and found a way to carry our 3 loaded kayaks around the obstruction. The bank was steep and we slipped in the mud several times getting back into the water. Other than the last log jam, it was a great trip! Very beautiful river!
