The river access at Highway 221, near the intersection of Highway 221 and Interstate 26, can be used as a take-out (from Anderson Mill) or a put-in (trip to Morris Bridge Road). There is no parking available at this river access.
Limited parking and river access is available where Hobbysville Road curves left and turns into Morris Bridge Road, before the bridge. Park north-west of the road, river-right, on the road's shoulder and follow the worn path on upstream right, which leads down the hill to the river. Please pull cars completely off the road and be aware of other vehicles.
This trip begins near the Highway 221 /Interstate-26 interchange on the North Tyger River. Morris Bridge Road is a 10 minute drive from Highway 221; shuttling cars could take about half an hour. River access at Highway 221 is upstream of the bridge, river left. Limited roadside parking is available along Frontage Road. Follow the power line right of way to the river. Once on the river, there is not another road crossing until nearing the take out. About 1.9 miles before the I-26 bridge, paddlers will encounter "Ott Shoals", a set of Class I-II rapids along a 400 foot island. Paddlers should stay to the left/larger channel. After the shoals, the I-26 bridge is 1.7 miles downstream. After crossing under the I-26 bridge, which is a pair of two bridges, the take out is approximately 1,300 feet downstream. Take out before the Morris Bridge Road bridge (S-231), river left. For more information see the Tyger River Blueway map.
