Trail Overview

This Connector between the SCAR Loop and Edisto Beach is a scenic and mostly-pavement jaunt in the coastal plain, over a causway and under tunnels of dangling spanish moss. Be sure to allow time to dip your feet in the Atlantic Ocean and explore a few of the relaxed eateries. 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.
