Paddle through the largest stand of rocky shoals spider lilies in the world and then hike through canal ruins! We’ll start our adventure at Landsford Canal State Park in Lancaster, SC. 

This park is home to well-preserved remains of the canal system that made the river commercially navigable in the 1800s. The spider lilies usually bloom between mid-May and early June. The route is roughly 2 miles. We’ll take out just downstream from the spider lily stand where your boat and gear will be shuttled back to the park while we hike 1.5 miles on the Landsford Canal Trail through the historic canal ruins with views of the river through Landsford Canal State Park.  

You are welcome to keep lunch in your car to enjoy at the park when we get back to our starting location. You may choose to bring your own kayak and equipment or rent a single sit-on-top kayak and accompanying gear from us. Your entrance fee of $6/person is included in the registration cost. This paddle will have small rapids in a shallow rocky environment. While beginners are welcome, this outing is best suited for intermediate paddlers and durable kayaks (carbon/Kevlar or other fragile vessels are not recommended).
