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 is very narrow and difficult. A full-size pickup may not make it through the trail. Many downed trees have been trimmed back off of the road. The route continues to Yellowjacket Road (FSR 159); however, a vehicle with mud tires and high clearance would be recommended. A half mile from the end of the road is a very muddy deep obstacle that is estimated to be approximately 30 inches deep. A vehicle with 33-inch tires may not be able to pass it; there is a stack of bumpers on the side of the trail from previous casualties.

Expect a normal forest service road except for the large mud holes. The larger ones are difficult to bypass and will make you question your decision to drive down this road. The smaller holes are deeper than they look. Don’t go through them at speed.
