Union Highway River Access and Roadside Parking (Unofficial)
 2470 Union Highway, Enoree, SC 29335
Access Details

Put-in downstream of the Union Highway bridge, river-left. A dirt drive connects to the road 300 feet from the bridge. The drive can become muddy in wet conditions. Park along the road's shoulder away from the guardrails and walk boats down to the river.

Trip Details

Union Highway is only a 10-minute drive from Kilgore Bridge Road, so shuttling cars should take less than half an hour. After putting in, the river is primarily flatwater. Paddlers will cross under the Beaverdam Church Road bridge, and then a railroad bridge and the US-221 bridge where there are a few shoals. After crossing under the 221 bridge, paddlers should stay to the right of the river; the Inman Mills Dam is 1,200 feet downstream of the 221 bridge. Portage around the dam is river-right. To avoid the shoals below the dam, paddlers can portage an additional 200 feet along bank of the right side of the river. Once back in the river, the river is flatwater until the take out at Union Highway bridge, downstream river-left.
