Cuckholds Creek Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This trip follows a tributary from its slender upper reaches along a wildlife refuge and onward as it widens into a large waterway bordered by former rice fields that are now transformed into waterfowl- and wildlife-rich wetlands. Then paddlers follow Cuckholds Creek to its end, where it meets the Combahee River, this wide and important vein of the ACE Basin.
At this stage, the Combahee River is massive, adding to the paddling experience as you make a gigantic bend before reaching Steel Bridge Landing on US 17. Both ends of the paddle have fine developed landings. At Cuckholds Landing, Cuckholds Creek is but 20 feet wide and very different from the end of your paddle, where the Combahee River will be well in excess of 500 feet across. After leaving Cuckholds Landing, the stream will twist and turn, bordered by a mix of low brush and trees."
