This 19 mile trail ambles along old railroad logging trams, traversing a wide array of habitat types, from mature longleaf pine stands to bottomland hardwood drains.

It offers captivating scenery to visitors. Horseback riders, hikers and mountain bikers may glimpse prothonotary warblers darting among swamp Cyprus trees or endangered red-cockaded woodpeckers in search of food in the bark of majestic longleaf pines. Visitors can camp along the trail, with a free permit obtained at the Forest Service office.

If you are interested in volunteering to help maintain the trail, please contact one of the district offices.

Note: During temperate months, be prepared for biting insects and high temperatures. Be advised of big-game hunting seasons. Avoid using the trail during excessively wet periods.
