June 16- Moderate downstream paddle on Black Creek into N.Fork Edisto River. Narrow rural pristine amber colored creek. Paddle where most boats can’t go! We’ll put in at State Road #245 (Hartley Quarter Road) outside of Pelion and paddle approximately seven-miles down a remote creek that’s often the width of a kayak, ending on the North Fork Edisto River at Highway 302. Due to swift flow, narrow width, and vegetation, this is moderately difficult for kayaks about ten-feet long. If you are able to maneuver your kayak well, fit enough to get over any downed tree trunks (there were only a few) and are unafraid to get into the water, this will be a short easy workout for you.
