“A pleasant forested run, which is the coastal starting point for the Palmetto Trail.”
— Missouri Hiker
The Awendaw Passage is the coastal portion of the Palmetto Trail. The trail starts at the Buck Hall Recreation Area Trailhead. This trail continues to wander westward through maritime forest and offers great view of the Low Country marshes along Awendaw Creek. Continue onward via the Palmetto Trail: Swamp Fox Passage
for a backpacking trip or end a day run at Steed Creek Trailhead.
Expect flat terrain along a singletrack dirt road. Particularly, this is an enjoyable run in the cooler months. Consider a bug net and bug spray in this area as mosquitoes are prevalent here.
