This section of the Palmetto Trail from the south winds 4 miles through pine and hardwood forest with the trail marked in yellow blazes. The terrain is composed of gentle hills with a doubletrack dirt path and occasional water crossings. It crosses Gilders and Indian Creek before joining Buncombe Horse Trail. From the 10-mile marker to the Brick House Campground, this becomes a shared use trail with equestrians. As you progress north, the trail passes a beaver pond, hardwood forest, and the Enoree River. An 80-foot bridge offers good views of the river here.
