Source of the Broad River in Western NC. One of three major tributaries to the Catawba- Wateree - Santee River basin, this mighty and churning river begins quietly in the hills above the Hickory Nut Gorge on a side road Morgan Hill) in the rhodederon thickets near the continental divide. A steep bushwhack down from the road to the small waterway and finally to the spring through a creek walk will lead you to the source - a gurgling spring covered with leaves. I am touching the water that will one day lead to the Atlantic Ocean after a long trip down boulders, rapids, long swirling valleys and finally convergence with the Catawba River in SC.
