Trip Details

The Tyger 10 Nature Park is a short 5 minute drive from Price House Road. Price House Road is located 100 feet from the South Tyger River where Ferguson Creek meets the South Tyger. Limited roadside parking is available along Price House Road. Paddlers should access the South Tyger River by putting in at the Price House Road bridge, which is over Ferguson Creek, and paddle 100 feet to the South Tyger River. Once on the river, paddlers will cross under two bridges, the second bridge being Interstate-26. After the I-26 bridge, paddlers will encounter some exciting curves in the river as well as Class II-IV rapids and shoals. The Class IV rapid is about 3,000 feet upstream of the confluence of the South Tyger with the North Tyger, forming the main stem of the Tyger River. The Class IV Rapid, Chesnee Shoals, can be scouted and portaged river left in low waters. Once the two rivers converge forming the Tyger River, the Tyger 10 Nature Park will be 2,000 feet ahead river left. The Tyger 10 Nature Park has plenty of parking, walking trails, and educational displays. For more information see the The Tyger River Blueway map.
