Wambaw Creek Canoe Trail (McClellanville)

Wambaw Creek Canoe Trail (McClellanville)

This winding blackwater creek is one of the Lowcountry’s finest places to paddle. From Still Landing, canoes and kayaks can head either direction through the cypress/tupelo stands that line the creek. Warblers, kites, and wildlife are abundant. If you have a second car to drop, it’s a 5-mile paddle from Still Landing to Wambaw Landing.

Directions from Charleston: Take Hwy 17 N to McClellanville, and turn left at the blinking yellow caution light onto Hwy 45 (French Santee Rd.). Go 4 miles and turn right onto Mill Branch Rd. (Forest Service Rd. 211). Drive 3 miles and turn left onto FS 211-B. Continue .5 mile to Still Landing. To reach Wambaw Landing, continue 4 more miles past the turn for FS 211-B on Mill Branch Rd. (FS 211).
