Just 15 minutes south of downtown Greenville, SC, this trip features exciting shoals and Class II rapids as well as sections of flatwater. There is a high potential for woody debris/ fallen trees in this section.
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.
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.
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.
