Anderson County's annual Saluda River Rally, one of the Upstate's premiere kayak events, is all set for Saturday.

Any citizen, including those with disabilities, will have the opportunity to enjoy self-guided kayak tours of the Saluda River, which will launch from M. J. “Dolly” Cooper Park in Powdersville, and end at Piedmont Dam or at the Timmerman Jr. Kayak Launch Facility in Pelzer.

The 9 or 15-mile paddles include shuttle service from the landing sites back to Dolly Cooper Park. The event will also offer primitive camping at Dolly Cooper Park. Registration for the event is $25, which includes a day of kayaking, BBQ, camping, entertainment, shuttles and a t-shirt..

Participants are asked to bring their own kayaks and floatation devices.

Registration details here.

The event will offer exclusive access to the river and access points, for not only beginner and experienced kayakers, but disabled kayakers as well. Since its inception in 2008, the rally’s primary purpose continues to promote kayaking, Saluda River recreation and Anderson County’s 48-mile ADA accessible corridor along the river. The event also serves as a Special Olympics Area 14 fundraiser to send Special Olympics athletes to the National Games.
