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 is a spur alternative route to the nearby Cumbee - FSR176 route. This route went through a controlled burn a few days before mapping, resulting in parts of the road being damaged by heavy equipment. Along the route are many opportunities for wildlife observation in the cleared fields.
