You can start from either the Huger Park Landing on SC 402 or the Ralph Hamer Sr. Landing on Cainhoy Road. If you start from the Ralph Hamer Sr. Landing you will paddle westward on Quinby Creek to the confluence of the East Branch Cooper River and Huger Creek and then turn north into Huger Creek. You will pass by marshland and old rice fields for most of this part and higher ground and scrub forest as you get nearer to Huger Park Landing. You may also extend your paddle by making a 1.2 mile out and back trip up Gough Creek. You may see an abundance of birds, especially wading birds, ducks, and osprey. Small alligators may also be encountered throughout this area.
