The Peak to Prosperity Passage segment of the Palmetto Trail offers an easy, flat route for most of its 10-mile journey. The views from the bridges are beautiful, plus there are ample opportunities for wildlife sightings. A highlight of the route is the Broad River trestle, which spans more than 1,000 feet and provides breathtaking views. The Peak to Prosperity Passage has a rich history; Crims Creek is known as the Dutch Fork due to the immigrants who settled there in the 1700s.
Parking is available at the trail's eastern terminus in Alston. From Columbia, take I-26 northbound. Take Exit 97 to US 176 and travel west for 11 miles. Take a right onto SC 213 and drive 3.1 miles. Turn right onto Alston Road (State Road S-20-35), which is the first road after the Broad River bridge. When Alston Road forks, veer right; you'll see parking shortly after crossing railroad tracks.
Another trailhead is available in Pomaria at the center of the trail route. From Columbia, take I-26 northbound. Take Exit 85 to reach SC 202; travel northeast on 202 until the T-intersection with US 176 and turn left. As you enter Pomaria, turn right on Anjella Street and park behind the kiosk adjacent to Wilson’s Grocery.
