11 MILLS BLUEWAY

South Fork Catawba River

A long paddle that will take you almost 9 miles down the South Fork Catawba River where you will witness both a beautifully protected shoreline and signs of Gaston's past in the textile industry with plenty of places to stop at parks, restaurants, and breweries along the way.
