This short section includes Class I-II rapids and can be done in about two hours. Convenient to major roads, this section is easy to get to and features suburban landscapes.
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. The river can be accessed downstream of the bridge, river right. To avoid the Class III Rapid "Big S-Slide", follow the stream bank to a point downstream of the rapid.
Limited roadside parking is available north of the bridge; do not block the entrance to the Open Arms Hospice facility. Carry boats 600 feet along the Greenville Technical College Nature Trail to the access on river left.
Be sure to park completely off of the road, and do not block nearby driveways or park on private property. The take out is only a short 5-minute drive away making shuttling cars quick and easy. After putting in, paddlers will experience a short section of shoals and Class I-II rapids. The remainder of this trip is primarily flatwater with occasional shoals/Class I-II rapids. The take out is the next bridge crossing after putting in the river. Take out river left and portage boats along the Greenville Technical College Nature Trail (dirt trail) 450 feet to the roadside pull off. Parking is available along the road to the Open Arms Hospice, just off of W Georgia Road.
