TYGER RIVER NEAR DELTA, SC

Flow range for best boatability uncertain. Please help your fellow boaters with a comment or report. The Delta gauge often does not accurately reflect the levels of this watershed.
Instructions to the Put-In
Take Exit 35 (Woodruff & Walnut Grove) from I-26. This exit is between Clinton and Spartanburg.
This will put you on the S J Workman Highway (Highway 50). Turn whichever direction and go to the
CitGo station. From the main sign at the CitGo station, head West toward Woodruff along the S J
Workman Highway. Go 0.2 miles and turn right on Price House Road (Highway 86) (the turn is just
past the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses). At 1.5 miles, you will cross Ferguson Creek that feeds into
the South Tyger which can be seen to the right. At 2.7 miles, you will cross the South Tyger at
Price Bridge.It looks
like you could launch at either place. Have not run this reach yet.
Instructions to the Take-Out
Go about 1.6 miles from the Ferguson Creek Crossing or 0.4 miles form the South Tyger crossing to
a stop sign at the intersection with Hobbysville Road (SC Road # S42-229). Turn right. Continue
down Hobbysville Road. At 0.7 miles, bear left onto Morris Bridge Road (South Carolina Road # S
42-231). At 0.9 miles from stop sign at the intersection with Hobbysville Road you will cross
I-20 and at 1.1 miles you will reach the put-in for the Route 231 to Route 113 reach of the North
Tyger. Continue 1.1 miles from the North Tyger put-in until you reach Hatchett Road. Turn
right on Hatchett Road and go 2.3 miles until you reach Walnut Grove Road (S 42-50). Turn right
and go .8 miles until Old Hlls Bridge Road.* After about 1 mile, go right following Road 113. The
take out is another 2.1 miles.
* If you continue on Walnut Grove Road for 2.4 miles, you will cross the Tyger on Highway 50. You
can see a lot of the rapids here. There are also very visible and unfriendly no trespassing
signs. I have not ever put in or taken out here because to do so will cause you to miss a lot of
the whitewater. There appears to be access at the bridge, but I do not its ownership status.
Intersection With the North Tyger
The South Tyger Intersects with the North Tyger (See AWA Reach Number 3555) to form the
Tyger about two
miles below the Ferguson Creek crossing and about four miles below the the Highway 86 crossing.
From this intersection, you are about about 0.3 miles above the Highway 50 crossing.
Pick Up Some Local Paddlers
Two sites to post a planned trip on or to request information are Carolina Paddlers Assembly and
Upstate Paddling. You will have to
join these groups to post but they are open to the public. You may pick up some local paddlers as
well as the North Tyger is a popular local reach when it is running. You may also want to check
the Palmetto Paddlers and their Scheduled Trips to see if anything is planned.
There are additional photos of the North Tyger in the Palmetto Paddlers photo album at Carolina
