This hiking trail winds through the Sumter National Forest between McCormick and Edgefield. Although it is considered a hiking trail, it is primarily used by mountain bikers.

The 20-mile trail follows part of Wine, Turkey and Steven's Creeks. Numerous access points give you a choice of various lengths and durations of trip. One portion of the trail is on private land.

Wine Creek is about 10 feet wide, has rocky bottoms, an its pools are similar to those of more mountainous areas. By contrast, Turkey and Stevens Creeks are broad, slow moving, and 40 to 80 feet wide. With occasional departures to climb ridges to view the creek bottom, the trail generally follows the first flat area above the water.

Large hardwood trees with little undergrowth will be encountered while in other areas dense vegetation flourishes. Try your luck at fishing in Turkey and Stevens Creeks. Primitive camping is available at Key Bridge Hunt Camp. Camp in designated sites only.

Directions: From Edgefield, Take SC route 23 south 1.9 miles, turn right onto route 19-35 (Walker Road), drive 5 miles. Turn left onto SC route 283, drive 6.3 miles to entrance on left.
