Trail Overview

This route lies between Great Falls and Camden and offers a more exhilarating alternative along the South Carolina Adventure Route. It consistently contains a number of short sections with mud and/or standing water, which can become deeper and more difficult if conditions are exacerbated by 4x4s treading not-so-lightly. This runs through a DNR Wildlife Management Area, and users are expected to sign in and out on either end of the passage. This trail is prone to damage during wet conditions which could lead to closure. Please avoid traveling this route when mud and standing water are present. If you must traverse it, make sure to air down to improve flotation and drive with care to avoid creating ruts and damaging the surroundings. We're relying on you to help keep this trail open! About the SCAR The South Carolina Adventure Route loops through approximately 1,000 miles of rural South Carolina. Along this route, you'll enjoy the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Atlantic Ocean, diverse forests, cotton fields, state parks, historical sites, and quaint towns. The SCAR also connects to the Smokey Mountains 500, the Georgia Traverse, and the Trans-America Trail (TAT), providing riders on those trails with a scenic route to the Atlantic coast at Edisto Beach. The roads along the SCAR are a mix of pavement and dirt, 60% and 40% respectively, with the surface alternating between gravel, dirt, clay, and sand. The route is not exceptionally technical, but dry conditions can leave the sandy roads loose, while wet conditions can leave the mud and clay roads slick and rutted. Travelers should expect to encounter deep sand and sizable mud holes in the worst conditions.
