Located in the 340,000 acre ACE Basin, this Lowcountry tidewater river is gentle and predictably beautiful with a rich wildlife and plantation heritage.
The Ashley, a designated S.C. Scenic River, was once the main highway of plantations during the 18th and 19th centuries, and is an estuary of great natural beauty with a delicate ecosystem flourishing where rice culture once thrived.
Designated a National Wild and Scenic River in 1974, the river begins in Nantahala Nationl Forest, passes through Ellicott Rock Wilderness Area, and is bordered by Sumter and Chattahoochee National Forests.
