Description

This passage of the Palmetto Trail was named for the sandy ridges which form the Sandhills geographical region. These rolling hills are the remnants of an ancient ocean shoreline which transformed into 'coquina' rock over time. Particularly, this feature is noticeable in Poinsett State Park.

The trail is a doubletrack dirt path that is shared use with occasional muddy areas depending on the season. The trail heads north from Mill Creek County Park through the pine wood ridges in Manchester State Forest. Continue onward to Poinsett State Park, which offers parking, camping, bathrooms, and other amenities.
