Edisto River River and Kayak Trail


The Edisto River Canoe and Kayak Trail is a recreational gem comprised of a series of access sites and points of interest along a 62-mile stretch of the Edisto River’s Main Stem. Tracing the majority of the border between Colleton and Dorchester Counties, the trail starts at Green Pond Church Landing and meanders eastward past Colleton State Park. At roughly the halfway point in the trail, the river makes a sharp southward turn near its confluence with Four Holes Swamp and passes Givhans Ferry State Park. The trail officially ends at Lowndes Landing but the river keeps on flowing into Charleston County. With ample camping and access throughout its length, the Edisto River Canoe and Kayak Trail offers a variety of single and multi-day trips for all ability levels.
