The Rocky River begins north of Charlotte near Mooresville. It flows southeast before swinging toward the east to join the Pee Dee River below Lake Tillery. It drains a watershed of about 1,500 square miles. Reed Gold Mine, location of the first authenticated discovery of gold in the United States, is on Little Meadow Creek, a tributary 5 miles north of the Section 1 put-in. In 1799, a 17-pound nugget was found in the creek. The mine has been preserved as a state historic site and is open to the public. This eTrail contains 6 sections of the Rocky River from Garmon Mill Road (Cabarrus Co. 1114) bridge to NC 109 bridge access on Pee Dee River.
