Cuckhold’s Creek offers scenic beauty, especially during the spring when the rare white spider lilies are in bloom along the banks, and the sight and sounds of many birds fill this serene area.
The first part of this trail is an easy float while on Cuckhold’s Creek, but becomes more challenging when you reach the Combahee River and the current slows. Cuckhold’s Creek offers scenic beauty, especially during the spring when the rare white spider lilies are in bloom along the banks, and the sight and sounds of many birds fill this serene area. This area also provides a bit of history, as you pass by the rice fields and the plantation house of the former Combahee Plantation. Be aware that about 1.5 miles from the put-in, Folly Creek joins Cuckhold’s Creek from the left can be mistaken for the main channel, so stay to the right. The best time launch is on the early falling tide, which in this area is 5-6 hours behind Charleston.
