Trail Overview

This gravel road rolls across some of the Sumter National Forest's piedmont area; it includes side puddles, that can hold water for a long time, and a delightful creek crossing that can gain depth rapidly with heavy rainfall. The creek crossing has a hard bottom (cement) but has a visible hole on the up-creek side when the water is clear.

Difficulty

The road is well maintained most of the year, however, with heavy rainfall the creek crossing can become deep. Eighty-five percent of the time the road is safe to travel with any 4x4, however, the crossing can increase to several feet.

The trail looked great, creek crossing was only a few inches deep. The trails branching off the main trail were full of mud.
