Swamp Fox Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The Swamp Fox Trail, part of South Carolina’s rail-trail system, follows old railroad logging trams for much of its length. You will need some patience to deal with the jolting of one bumpy stretch caused by crossties just below the trail’s surface. The trail travels deep into the Lowcountry’s swampland. Enjoy marshy bogs thick with evergreens and drier ridges lined with open stands of pine. You can ride fast on this flat, wide singletrack with little concern of meeting any technical difficulties. Local Scout troops built the original Swamp Fox Trail in the mid 1960s, and they continue to maintain the trail. Their handiwork includes mile markers, wooden bridges, and an elaborate boardwalk section. This trail is the first part of the 42-mile Swamp Fox Passage of the Palmetto Trail. Tread: Wide singletrack with 6 miles on old railroad logging tram and 1.2 miles on gravel road."
