Hanging Rock Park Access to Moratock Park Information

Put-In Location

There is no numerical address for this put-in.

The river access is just beyond the Dan River Company on Flinchum road.
Dan River Company
1110 Flinchum Rd
Danbury, NC 27016

Estimated Miles: 5.2 miles
​Estimated Time to Complete: Around 4 hours (depending on water flow)​

Things to note:

You will run into tubers at the 2nd bridge which is the Seven Island Rd bridge.  You will also encounter other kayakers along the way as this is a popular run for kayakers and tubers.

When you come into Moratock park, be careful of the people swimming in the river.  This is also a popular summer destination so it's likely to be crowded if you go through during warmer months.

Take Out Location

The take-out is pretty easy.  Take the access road that is across the street from the main river access to Moratock park.  Follow the dirt road to the end and you will see the stairs for the river access/take out.
