Pictures of some of the rapids in the park area are soon to come. If your near this area you should check this little section out. Ryan lets get some rapid descriptions up here.
I am looking for information on where to park when putting in near the dam. Any information would be greatly appreciated. I am coming from the Columbia area.
Is there any updated information regarding possible releases through the Pitts Park area?
Is the USGS gauge at Ware Shoals of any use for this stretch of the Saluda? A dam is downstream of the take-out, and this gauge is downstream of the dam. The gauge will be measuring water over the dam plus water running thru the turbines.
We are currently trying to restore flow to the bypassed section of the Saluda River at Ware Shoals. If you would like to be involved in this project please email me: email@example.com
Just looking for some description of the river itself in this area.
