Edisto River
I paddled the Edisto from Orangberg to somewhere around I-95 about 10years ago. It was a very senic river and as best as I can recall, relatively un-developed. I think it took us 3 days to do that section(we took out below the power plant at some state park) You may want to add the section above Orangeberg, which is a canoe trail, that is Thirty plus miles long. If you go this time of year, beware of the sand gnats, and mosquitos!

It’s beautiful, just call and check on the water levels.

Maybe I can join ya’ll for a day. :slight_smile:

Happy paddling!
