River Description

See North Tyger from Route 231 to Route 113 for a description of this reach. The run from the North Tyger to the intersection with the South Tyger is included in this description. There is no access at the intersection of the two rivers. The nearest take-out is Walnut Grove Road which is described in the Route 231 to Route 113 description. There are 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.

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 Paddlers Assembly.

The South and North must be done as one or suffer the terrible hike out. The level must be at least
900 cfs to make it worth the time. I have run it at 16' ,more like the Gauley with a lot of trees
and strainers. Optimum would be 2000 to 3000 cfs.

You can take out at the hwy. 50 bridge which is about 1/3 mile downstream of the confluence. If you
do try to take out at the actual confluence you would have a long hike. I am not sure about the
land ownership at hwy. 50 bridge. I have only taken out there about once out of the 100+ times I
have paddled the river.

There is no takeout for this run. If you boat down to the South Tyger confluence and expect to take
out you are in for a big surprise. The only takeout is an EXTREAMLY LONG unhappy hike up an old
road bed to the South Tyger put in. This is really not a valid run but part of the normal North
Tyger run listed elsewhere in the AW page.
