Rathall Creek

Rathall Creek (also written as Rat Hall Creek) in Mount Pleasant, seen here, is a tributary of the Wando River. The tidal creek runs in front of the Hibben, Etiwan Pointe, and Grassy Creek planned communities and is a popular spot for kayakers. After crossing the James B. Edwards Bridge over the Wando River from Daniel Island to Mount Pleasant, the creek runs parallel to the Mark Clark Expressway on the left side.

Reflections on Rathall Creek

Contributor Christopher Kolb of Mount Pleasant says: “I kayak this creek with my son. I taught him how to crab, fish, dock jump, and just simply love growing up in the lowcountry as much as I did. These marshes and creeks hold a special place in my heart as they always remind me of much simpler times in Mt. Pleasant. It’s a place to escape the hustle of the days and get close to nature.”
