Saltwater Paddling Trail - McClellanville to Winyah Bay at Georgetown

Southeast Coast Saltwater Paddling Trail LogoImportant wildlife areas on the paddling trail include the Santee Coastal Reserve Wildlife Management Area, Tom Yawkey Wildlife Center Heritage Preserve, and the North Inlet-Winyah Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR). This NERR is part of the adjacent research reserve of Hobcaw Barony, which includes the Belle W. Baruch Institute for ecological research. The historic Georgetown Lighthouse is at North Island. The City of Georgetown was once an important international port that served the area's once-thriving rice plantations and now features a significant historic district and Rice Museum. Georgetown's Morgan Park and East Bay Park are adjacent to the trail.
