Trails


Peak to Prosperity Passage: After years of working through the railbanking process, Palmetto Conservation purchased an 11-mile, 200 ft. wide right-of-way from Norfolk Southern Railroad.   The rail trail begins on the banks of the Broad River at Alston in Fairfield County and continues west into Newberry County, through piedmont forest, into the towns of Peak and Pomaria, and over 14 wooden trestles that cross Crims Creek.


The first 6.5 miles were opened in 2009 after two volunteers, Charles Weber and Furman Miller, cleared and decked eight trestles.  A grant from SC PRT allowed us to deck and add handrails to the 1100 ft. long bridge over the Broad River.  The view is spectacular, especially when the bald eagles soar overhead.  A PARD grant through Fairfield County provided funds to develop a beautiful park/trailhead at Alston that provides parking, picnicking, canoe access, and camping.

Length: 10.8 miles
Use: Hiking and Mountain Biking
Difficulty: Easy
