Spiers Landing is accessed by turning off of Highway 6 one half of a mile west of the Cross Fire Department #2 onto Spiers Landing Road. The paved launching facility is part of a Berkeley County Park that offers plenty of parking and easy launching. As the map of the trail shows, there are numerous islands to paddle around, as well as several miles of inviting shoreline.
From Spiers Landing, you will paddle around a number of islands of different sizes. One of the larger islands, Church Island has an old cemetery near its north shore which provides a resting place for a number of Confederate soldiers. Several of the islands have beaches and high areas where you can stop for lunch or camp overnight, but be sure you take your trash with you. You will see ospreys and a wide assortment of wading birds as well as alligators sunning on the shores.
If you stop at any of the islands, insect repellent is recommended in the warm months.
Camping: Primative camping on the islands.Directions:
