Madden Bridge Road River Access and Parking Area
 952 Madden Bridge Road, Central, SC 29630
Access Details

A small parking area is available upstream river-right in addition to limited roadside parking downstream river-right of the Madden Bridge Road bridge. From the parking area, follow the trail parallel to the bridge for about 500 feet down to a small sandy beach.

Trip Details

As the Twelve Mile River enters Lake Hartwell, the channels become very clear and wide. Paddlers can use Madden Bridge Road as a beginning and end point, and paddle upstream or downstream at their own leisure. If paddling downstream toward Lake Hartwell, be aware that paddling back upstream can become difficult in windy conditions or in higher water.
