Yadkin River State Trail

Yadkin River State Trial SymbolThe Yadkin River begins in the Appalachian Mountains near Blowing Rock and flows through the Piedmont for 203 miles to Lake Tillery, where its name changes to the Pee Dee River.  The navigable waters start below the Kerr Scott Reservoir near Wilkesboro and continue for 163 miles to the confluence of the Uwharrie River at Morrow Mountain State Park.  This portion was designated as the Yadkin River State Trial in 1985 as a blueway or water trail. 

Currently there are 17 public launch points for paddlers to access the river, with more planned in the future, between Kerr Scott Dam and High Rock Lake. Travel times between each point vary, offering paddlers options for short trips (1-2 hours) or longer day trips.  For more information, see both the PDF brochure map and online interactive map below, or reach out to the Yadkin River Keeper.
