The Oolenoy River is a minor tributary of the Saluda River sourced near Sassafras Mtn. in northern Pickens County, SC. Approximately 37 miles in length, it empties into the South Fork Saluda River near the Pumpkintown Community. It is part of the Santee River System.
Via the Congaree River, it is part of the watershed of the Santee River, which flows to the Atlantic Ocean.
The Saluda River is formed about 10 mi (15 km) northwest of the city of Greenville, on the common boundary of Greenville and Pickens Counties, by the confluence of its north and south forks, each of which rises in the Blue Ridge Mountains very near the border of North Carolina:
From this confluence the Saluda River flows generally southeastwardly through the Piedmont region, through or along the boundaries of Pickens, Greenville, Anderson, Abbeville, Laurens, Greenwood, Newberry, Lexington and Richland Counties, past the towns of Piedmont, West Pelzer, Pelzer, Ware Shoals and West Columbia.
