This popular stretch is paddled annually by families during the Tame The Tyger event hosted by the Tyger River Foundation. A great family section, this trip boasts exciting Class II rapids and shoals. Paddlers will also see the confluence of the North and South Tyger Rivers, forming the main stem of the Tyger River along this trip.
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.
Nesbitt Shoals Park is the first public river access along the Tyger River, located just a few minutes off of I-26 (Exit 35). Park cars completely off the road along the upstream/west side of the road. Provided by the Tyger River Foundation, the park offers parking, trails, river access, and picnic tables.
The Tyger 10 Nature Park is a 10 minute drive from Morris Bridge Road; shuttling cars could take a half hour. Limited roadside parking is available along Morris Bridge Road. Access the river on the upstream river left side of the Morris Bridge Road bridge. Once on the river, paddlers will encounter exciting shoals and rapids on average about every 500-1,000 feet. After the confluence of the North and South Tyger Rivers, paddlers will soon see the Walnut Grove Road bridge, which is 2,000 feet downstream of the rivers' confluence. There are shoals for about 1,500 feet before the bridge; paddlers should stay to the left side of the river and exit the river upstream of the Walnut Grove Road bridge at the Tyger 10 Nature Park.
