Sand Hills State Forest Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A prehistoric sea once covered what is now South Carolina, depositing sand over a wide area. Later, these seas retreated, leaving a region of deep, infertile hills of sand. Over time, many plants and animals adapted to these hills, but settlers farming the land couldn’t thrive as nature could.
The state eventually acquired the land and now manages 46,000-acre Sand Hills State Forest. Here, tent campers can enjoy the activities of the forest, such as mountain biking, hiking, fishing, and exploring the unique ecosystem."
