We put in at the Debutary Access area and canoed up to Stumpy Pond and the old Catawba River route. The reservoir was beautiful with only a few houses at the launch. The rest of the area we paddled was undeveloped and gorgeous.
It was a pretty easy paddle to the north tip of Hill Island where the rocks begin. We tied up our boat and headed out to explore the rocky stream. It takes a while but you can make your way up the stream hopping from rock to rock. We made our way up to a small waterfall and had some lunch. The rocks were beautiful and it was a blast exploring the old river bed. We were the only paddlers out there and a couple of fishing boats. This is a hidden gem!
