NOTICE: The Blackstock Battlefield Passage of the Palmetto Trail is currently CLOSED until further notice.

Description

The historical Blackstock Battlefield is a 54-acre preserve where Revolutionary War patriots defeated the British. There are two trail entrances, marked by posts near the large trailhead sign. Running the loop clockwise, the trail leads northwest through a pine forest, climbing gently. The loop is blazed red with occasional yellow Palmetto Trail blazes. After reaching a bluff, the trail descends, using several switchbacks, to reach the Tyger River. Here, you can find a Palmetto Trail campsite with picnic tables.

Upon reaching the river, the trail curves right, and joins another old road to climb briefly. Continue to find the Blackstock Battlefield monument, which is a single stone pillar with an interpretive sign that stands near the crest of the hill on which a former plantation once stood. A short descent returns you to the trailhead area to complete the run.

This loop currently stands alone, but when fully completed the state-long Palmetto Trail will pass through the site.
