Trail Overview

The Francis Marion National Forest is located north of Charleston, South Carolina. It is named for Revolutionary War hero Francis Marion, who was known to the British as the Swamp Fox. It lies entirely within the Middle Atlantic coastal forests ecoregion. The park is also entirely in a subtropical coniferous forest. There is a major trash issue right now in the forest; please pack out our trash and collect a bag if you have the capability. This route connects many of the major routes that have been mapped within Francis Marion National Forest. This alternative route offers a quick cutoff to avoid more of the heavier-trafficked areas.
