Description

Part of the cross-state Palmetto Trail, the Swamp Fox Passage, at 47 miles, is the trail's longest section. This section of the trail resides entirely in the Francis Marion National Forest. Runners will pass through long-leaf pine forests, grassy savannas, and swamps. There are many road crossings and access points along the trail.

For parking: Refer to the Palmetto Conservation Foundation's website for more detailed information and maps for the trail.
