New Website Maps Local Waterways

A new website is offering outdoor enthusiasts information on how to better navigate waterways across South Carolina.

Upstate Forever has launched Paddle SC, www.gopaddlesc.com. The website will be updated with additional content on a regular basis and currently includes descriptions of 63 waterways, 108 trip listings, 390 points of interest and 612 river accesses, along with resources to help paddlers navigate coastal tides and river flow gauges.

The nonprofit organization also released new waterproof maps for the Broad and Twelve Mile rivers on Wednesday. The maps are available free of charge at Upstate Forever’s Greenville and Spartanburg offices, local bookstores and local outdoor outfitters. Downloadable maps are also available at www.upstateforever.org and the Paddle SC website.

The Paddle SC website is a part of Upstate Forever’s four-year “Reconnecting People to Rivers” initiative and was developed in partnership with the S.C. Department of Natural Resources, the S.C. National Heritage Corridor and Palmetto Conservation.
