Buncombe Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The Palmetto Trail uses this section of the Buncombe Trail to cross the Sumter Passage. The passage will eventually traverse the southern half of the ranger district. Enjoy this 9.1-mile ride, and if you liked this stretch, come back and explore the rest of the Buncombe Trail. See the map for details on the entire loop. This section of the equestrian loop is in fairly good shape, and only short stretches of the hard-packed clay are torn up from horse traffic. Otherwise, you’ll find excellent singletrack along pine ridges and through hardwood bottoms. Be prepared for several creek crossings. The Union County Horse Association maintains the first 2 miles of trail; after that, the white blazes can occasionally be hard to follow. Tread: Singletrack with some wide roadbed and 1.8 miles on gravel road."
