Savannah River Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"At Stony Bluff Landing, the Savannah River is about 200 feet wide, flowing between thickly wooded banks. Just downstream note some channel aids. Wooden berms known as wing dams or weirs extend into the water, deepening the channel for big boats despite the dearth of commercial traffic here. (Barges once went all the way up to Augusta from the coast.)

Riprap lies along the banks. You will also notice the channel marker numbers—another legacy of the Army Corps of Engineers, which manages not only the river but also the dams upstream."
