Cowasee was completed in early 2016 and is the newest trail in Poinsett State Park.

Loading Trails

Cowasee is a twisty trail that takes the rider off of the Scout Loop/Palmetto Trail doubletrack. It begins where the Whippoorwill Trail ends in the counterclockwise direction and ends near the parking lot. The counter-clockwise direction is a gradual downhill for much of the trail.

Free Wireless Internet (Wi-Fi) is available at and near the park office building.
