Loading Trails

From the Ninety Six Historic Trail, near the Star Fort earthworks, you can pick up a trail guide and begin this short, foot traffic only, spur trail that loops through the area where Robert Goudey's trading post once thrived. Follow  the grass-covered historic Charleston Road and turn right at the Gouedy Trail sign. You will cross a field, enter the woods, and come to a bench at the James Gouedy gravesite. As you rest, you may see wildlife including birds, lizards, and snakes. Continue on the winding dirt trail back to the Charleston Road, turn left and return to the Ninety-Six Historic Trail, or you can extend your hike on the Cherokee Path Trail that crosses Charleston Road.

Restrooms, water and maps are available at the Visitor Center, which includes a museum and gift shop. Insect repellent is recommended during warm weather. Pets are allowed on a leash.
