It's great to start at the Fort Mill access dam or the Riverwalk Park in Rock Hill and travel down the river. It's about a day trip if the water was recently released off the Wylie dam (check Duke Power release times), but the views are worth it. It's like looking from a different point of view traveling down the river and seeing it from a kayak for 7 hours. The best time to take the trip is late May/early June when the Rocky Shoals Spider Lilies are in full bloom. It's definitely a treat!
