pretty sandy, but a nice and secluded trek. we used it to practice with our packs for a foothills trail session.

Nice, easy trail. Shuttled vehicles at KMSP and boulders access parking lot making this a nice 4.4 mile one way nature walk, not a 8.8 mile hike.

Hiking

This was a beautiful hike. Reservoir 3 / North Lake trail is the biggest and prettiest lake in the park. Walking back up Kanuga you have a great view of the lake in winter almost the entire way. I went down the Brissy Ridge hikers only trail then up to Pipsissewa, to North Lake (the long way around) to Kanuga, and back via the first right onto Brissy Ridge. I clocked about 7 miles, adjusting for a few times I veered off course, so I think the trail is longer than indicated here. There were nice campsites at the lake too, and I would consider returning to camp.

This is a nice hike that runs along the shore of the Keowee river in places. It is not labeled on the trail map, but you need to use the Double Logging Road Trail to connect between logging road 2 and Triple Creek trail. Even the map at the trailhead only shows part of Double Logging road trail, but not the portion that continues to Triple Creek. If you are coming down Triple Creek, turn right onto Double Logging, and follow that to Logging Road 2. If you start on Logging Road 2, it turns into Double Logging, which you can follow to Triple Creek. The trails are well marked and in good condition. A little over two hours on foot.

Super easy trail...flat and level...perfect for bicycles.... pet friendly, lots of drinking water stops, bathrooms as well.... great at sunset overlooking the salt flats. Best in the spring, fall, and winter.... too hot, buggy, and humid for the dead of summer.

Hiking

The pier has been closed due to hurricane damage but the first half or so is open again. Worth a stroll for lovely view of the marsh and the egrets who like to hang out on the broken section. No bugs in the off season.

Running

Did part of this route - hard to tell from this map whether it includes the beach or there is trail beside it - I ran down the beach but then could not find the Lighthouse Magnolia Connector trail so ended up running on the park road to the Magnolia Trail back to the campground, which was well marked and lovely. This would be 5 stars if better marked, but the park suffered a lot of hurricane damage. The beach is full of downed trees which are eerie and beautifully sculptural. Low tide sand is packed and very easily runnable

Really great. Dog friendly (on leash), lots of shade, and the views off the top are fantastic. If you want to avoid crowds I would start before at least 1000. Took us (pretty decent shape) about two hours to get to the top and about the same to get back down to the car.

Walked it today and viewed an amazing variety of birds on Sandpiper pond. An easy walk on a blustery day.

Walked from parking to river which was nice. Trail won't comfortablely allow two wide - have to walk the edge...it is forested and open. Saw one deer comfortablely away, probably too many bikes coming through. Will probably cone Shaun and do the whole loop.

We were on our way to a different trail when we saw the falls from the road so decided to check it out. Had our 3 month old Australian Shepard Mix out for his first hike. It was easy, great scenery. Perfect trail to see how he’d do! Bet it’s gorgeous in spring & fall!

Nice walk. No excessively long or steep climbs. Completed the loop in a little over 2 hours. Likely even nicer when there are leaves on the trees. Will definitely be back.

This trail was great! It's well maintained and the waterfall is great! We didn't make the full loop which was a nice perk that you can turn around at any time.

Ran the full trail using Gun Gap to make a 9.8 mile loop. There were a couple gaps in the blazes that took some hunting. Also once you start heading uphill towards the falls the trail is overgrown and a few trees down. Overall still was a great hike/run. Check out the cable bridge that leads to the girl scout camp.

Hiking

This was my first time on the palmetto trail, I definitely would like to plan a trip from end to end! But sticking to this section. The trail begins gentle, slight decent into some bottom land hiking, definitely a very different but fun feel, you could pretend to be Francis Marion evading the northern army’s! The entire area used to be the stomping grounds of a sect of the Cherokee nation, and at certain light you can almost see the Braves peaking from behind the trees watching as travelers traverse in and out of the Forrest. In truth it is February now, bottom land is typically muggy and buggy in the summer time! However the falls were breathtaking, I’m certain that on a hot summers day the reward would be worth the pain. The trail was easily traversed, and after turning off the falls you step on to the palmetto trail and immediately begin to ascend. The trail moves up several spurs and ridge Lines working from the Oconee Station up to the Oconee state park. We jumped the trail over to the Tamassee knob trail and worked our way up to Tamassee knob. It was predominantly incline from trail head to the knob, though there was a little down hill between the park and the final ascent to Tamassee knob. Sumpter National Forrest has some beautiful fairytale Forrest sections. I’m certain during a damp spring the forest, just waking up from a winters sleep, would provide quite a magical experience! In all however, the grades were mostly gentle and the trip very doable!

It was closed because the one if the bridges was broken so we had to turn back around.

It’s a good biking trail but some of the side trails have tree roots. Nice place to spend your day.

Hiking

nice trail, dense fog when I went. so cannot comment on views. But the river and suspension bridge, were the highlights. I went clockwise, like others commented. But I think counter clockwise would have been better. Trail was well marked. I mileged it at 8.9. The loop is 7.1, but it is about a mile to get to that point. Will definitely hike it again.

This is a great place to visit. Sculptures, plants and animals. But is a garden and park mire than for hiking. Deduct 1 star for $18 tickets each when it was listed here at $12. A bit pricey.

Really enjoyed this trail! There are a couple of spots that give really great views, and I loved the facts about the railroad and various plants along the way

First part was along a somewhat busy road, and there was horse poop every 20 feet. The large portion along the lake was nice though

Could have enjoyed the trail significantly more if I wasn't constantly looking at the ground to avoid horse poop. Along with that, there was a guy constantly shooting a gun near by which significantly retracted from the serenity of the trail. There is a part that lets you go onto the beach at the lake, but other than that its a rather boring trail.
