Blueways are water trails designed for accessible paddling with launch sites, maps, and points of interest.

Palmetto Conservation collaborated with the Glendale Outdoor Leadership School, Spartanburg County, and the SC Department of Natural Resources to develop the Pacolet & Lawson’s Fork Blueway, which opened in September 2014. The blueway consists of 50 miles of river travel and recreation that begins in Metropolitan Spartanburg both on the Pacolet River and its Lawson’s Fork, and extends on the Broad River to Lockhart where a portage leads to the lower Broad River.

Other groups contributing to the blueway development included Lockhart Power Company, Pacolet Milliken Enterprises, Spartanburg Area Conservancy, Spartanburg County Parks Department, Wofford College, Spartanburg Water, and the towns of Pacolet, Lockhart, Clifton, and Glendale.
