Poinsett State Park is sometimes called “the mountains of the Midlands,” because of the unique natural setting. The newest addition to the park’s trail system is the Swamp Fox—this trail travels along the edges of Campbell Creek’s swampy valleys.

The newest trail addition to the Poinsett State Park trail system—the Swamp Fox—is stacked onto the Whippoorwill Trail. Much of 2.8-mile trail skirts the edges of Campbell Creek's swampy valleys with some open firebreak sections that are faster. The Spanish moss-colored tree blazed trail is open and ready to ride.
