Our launch site is located at one of the oldest grist mill sites in the area. This is a historical site. You will enjoy seeing remnants of these mills as you are paddling on the river.
Starting at the old grist mill on Roaring River, you can canoe to the Ronda access area located at the park in Ronda picnic area or you can continue on down the mighty Yadkin to the access area located at the old ball park in Elkin.
Also, you can be transported to one of the access ramps in Wilkesboro and canoe back to old grist mill on Roaring River. No matter what trip you take, you will enjoy the abundance of wildlife and scenery.
If you are a fisherman, small mouth, large mouth, red eyes and catfish are a few of the fish you cancatch.
