Bull Sluice

Bull Sluice

US 76
Westminster, SC
Bull Sluice is a prominent rapid on the Georgia and South Carolina border on the Chattooga River, which was featured in the film Deliverance. You can often see kayakers and rafters running this dangerous IV+ rapid, which drops 14 feet. A paved trail leads part of the way on this 0.2 mile hike to an observation platform. Its convenient location off of the US76 bridge makes it a popular destination.
