Paddle Sparkleberry Swamp! April 27th, 2014

This is a beautiful paddle through a flooded forest and to hidden lakes! So far, it is our groups favorite repeat paddle. Free with your own kayak or $25 a seat for a rental. Call Nature Adventures at[masked] to reserve. Kayaks or Canoes are fine. From Charleston – Click on this link (Map Quest) and take Sparkleberry Landing road to the end. http://www.mapquest.com/#eace3bda65125a827570a8ac 

Hey Gals,  Here are written directions from Charleston:  Take I-26 West to I-95 North, .  Take Exit 102 and continue underneath I-95 to the stop sign at Hwy. 15/301.  There is a Horizon Gas Station across the highway (good place to meet).  Turn RIGHT onto 15/301 and then go approximately 4 miles.  Turn LEFT onto liberty Hill Road.  Follow it for about 2.5 miles.  Turn LEFT onto Governor Richardson Road.. (SC RD 26).  Follow this road and go over RR Tracks... continuing on Old River Road.... It's about 8.1 miles and it actually becomes SC 51 (Old River Road) ...in Rimini.  Start looking for a mailbox on the left with the address 7710 ... Turn LEFT onto the next road (the road sign is down).  When you Turn LEFT (this is a dirt road and actually Sparkleberry landing road), there will be a White store called DOTS Grocery.   

Any problems Call Kathie at[masked] or Elizabeth at[masked]-1036.  Thanks, Kathie

    I was not use to paddling w 50 people, but was impressed with the way the leaders managed the put in and takeout so smoothly, considering we had to share the ramps w/ several motorboats. Saw 4 Water Snakes, and the moss-draped Tupelo and Bald Cypress were magnificent. Perfect weather, no bugs!

    Hey Kathie, the only thing is, the map on the 1st 2 links, show diff roads to get to the place, than the directions, if followed, follow. so as long as I get to the 'end' of Sparkleberry Rd, I'll be good? or are we meeting at DOTS grocery, at the i-section of 51 (Camp McBoykin Rd) & SparkleberryRds?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
