Description

This short segment of the Palmetto Trail begins on the USC Upstate campus in Spartanburg. The path enters a wooded forest on the banks of the Lawson’s Fork Creek. From the trailhead at the Rampey Center, it drops slowly to a picnic area above the Lawson’s Fork. The path passes by a rocky knoll and a wooden bridge before continuing onto a single path on the banks of the Lawson’s Fork.
