There is a parking lot/ trailhead on the righthand side of Sawmill Creek Rd.

A short unkempt, tic infested trail. It features a downed tree that you have to crawl under and various large swampy spots to soak your feet in so bring water proof hikers. Dogs are allowed on the leash but leave the puppers at home because of the tics.

Between my wife, me and our dog we had 14 tics on our bodies. There's not a lot to see on the trail either besides some hanging moss but it's SC so you can literally see that anywhere, so this was not worth it.

Downed trees blocked the trail, so we couldn't hike the entire loop. Enjoyed the 3.5 miles we managed to walk. Renamed it Mosquito Trail. Bring your bug spray.

Potentially a nice hiking trail but the trail was blocked in several places with downed trees from the 2016 hurricane. Near the southwest corner of the loop the trail was blocked with a large pool of water and we had to return to the parking area using the main road. Some trail maintenance is needed to make this a family friendly hike. Bring bug spray for the mosquitoes too.
