We put in at cow horn rd in Richland n.c.
The trail on the sight starts on hwy 24 but when the water is hi the cow horn swamp is better. The water is getting lower the canoe scraped in a few spots nothing bad the yak had no probs. We saw a lot of ducks and song birds and one deer. The cow horn meets the new river about 2hrs in to your trip. There are a lot of large cypress trees in the upper section and a lot of cool looking rocks in the lower sec. If you are going up river from the rhodestown landing you will take a right at the fork. Really a fun trip but I can’t say it enough check the water level or you’ll get stuck in the swamp I did it last summer not fun. If you go through in the warm weather be wear of alligators and snakes. There are 4 log dams all of the passable in the boat in both directions. If u have any?? Hit me up. email@example.com
