Description: This trail winds through a mostly longleaf pine
forest in the Francis Marion National Forest. You will find regrowth in some areas,
evidence of Hurricane Hugo (1989). The forest is also filled with dogwood, black-eyed
oak, deer, wild turkey, and the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker. Because this area is near the coast, parts of the trail
are prone to flooding.
Since these trails are shared, you may encounter
hikers or mountain bikers. Insect repellent is
recommended during warm months.
Length: This is a 19 mile loop.
Directions: From Exit 208 on I-26, drive on SC Hwy. 52 to Moncks Corner.
From Moncks Corner, drive east on SC 402 to SC 41. Turn left and
drive 7 miles to the
trailhead on the left.
Camping: There is primitive camping available, however, a permit is required from
the District office.
