Description [Suggest Changes]

This is one of four main loop trails in the Fant's Grove Wildlife Management Area, a Clemson University owned property. This trail is probably the least used trail in the trail system. It is about 90% forest road, and it is used heavily by hunters during hunting season. It may be best to avoid use during this time. It is also used by equestrians, so be sure to follow trail use rules: bikers must yield to horses and hikers. Riding with a trail bell is a good idea.

This trail is marked with plastic blue bars/rectangles nailed to the trees all along the route. The only ways to access this trail are by parking at the Big Oaks Trailhead or by riding along the Red Square Trail until it overlaps with this trail. Some portions of the trail trail may be difficult to see in late fall/early winter. Leaf litter at times may be deep.

As of January 2017 a large section of forest on the southeast section of the trail was removed during logging operations making the trail difficult to navigate. A few metal rods with the top portion painted blue have been placed to mark the route of the trail. Printed trail maps, courtesy of the local equestrian club, are usually available at the kiosk at the Butch Kennedy Trailhead.
