Conestee Road River Access (Unofficial)
 282 Conestee Road, Greenville, SC 29607

Conestee Road should be used as a river access only. Parking is available at 48 Spanco Drive, 950 feet from the put in. Put in downstream of the bridge, river-left. 

Take out:
Log Shoals Road River Access and Roadside Parking
 212 Log Shoals Road, Greenville, SC 29607
Access Details

This site is the future home of the Log Shoals Park and River Access, located downstream river-right. Although construction has not yet begun, river users may still utilize this river access during the daytime.

Trip Details

This trip begins just below the Lake Conestee Dam immediately downstream from the Lake Conestee Nature Park. Paddlers should park vehicles at the Spanco Road Parking Lot and put in downstream of the Conestee Road bridge, river left. The future site of Log Shoals Park (the take out) is a 15-20 minute drive, so shuttling cars could take close to 45 minutes. After putting in, paddlers will cross under a pipe after 1,800 feet. The first road crossing is Ashmore Bridge Road. Paddlers will then cross under a foot bridge that is a part of the Hejaz Shrine Golf Club. Interstate-185 is just downstream of the golf club. After crossing under the bridge, the next road crossing is Log Shoals Road, and the take out will be river-right, downstream of the bridge.
