Take road between Y and school, then gravel road on right down to ball field. Park here, then portage around outfield and down trail to sign, then left to put in. Maybe 100 yards.
Go straight to go up creek. Shallow-bottomed kayaks can make it about a mile and a half to 557 bridge with a couple of portages around dead falls. Very wild.
Go right about a mile to 49 bridge then Lake Wylie and houses.
