“A multi-use trail in the Fant's Grove Clemson Experimental Forest management area.”— Timothy Parrish
Family Friendly Mostly forest road with low grade.
This trail is marked with plastic blue bars/rectangles nailed to the trees all along the route. The only ways to access this trail are by parking at the Big Oaks Trailhead or by hiking along the Red Square Trail until it overlaps with this trail. Some portions of the trail trail may be difficult to see in late fall/early winter. Leaf litter at times may be deep.
As of January 2017 a large section of forest on the southeast section of the trail was removed during logging operations making the trail difficult to navigate. A few metal rods with the top portion painted blue have been placed to mark the route of the trail. Printed trail maps, courtesy of the local equestrian club, are usually available at the kiosk at the Butch Kennedy Trailhead.
