North Tyger and Tyger Rivers: Spartanburg CR 231 Bridge to US 176 Bridge Professional Review and Guide
"The North Tyger heads up into northern Spartanburg County and flows practically the length of the county, to where we pick it up just upstream of the confluence with the South Tyger. It drops through the Fall Line, presenting several miles of interesting whitewater. This area is composed of long pools, with occasional sharp drops and long shoals. The Tyger is formed in Spartanburg County after the confluence of the North, Middle, and South Fork. It then flows generally south and east to meet the Broad east of Whitmire. As it drops through the Fall Line, it presents a stretch of rather fast and difficult whitewater before it flattens out in the plains and meanders across the Sumter National Forest. Other than the occasional bridges spanning the river, one sees little sign of habitation. The entire stretch is fairly wild and scenic."
