Wateree Passage is part of the Palmetto Trail, a developing trail system that stretches over 500 miles across the state. The trail is known for its wildlife, including deer, wild turkey, and a variety of bird species. You may also spot evidence of beaver activity, as the area is home to several beaver ponds and lodges.
The trail winds through a variety of terrain, including hardwood forests, pine stands, and wetlands, providing a diverse and ever-changing landscape. Along the way, you will encounter several scenic vistas, including views of Lake Wateree and the Wateree River, offering stunning views of the water and surrounding hillsides.
The trail surface is primarily natural terrain, with some sections of boardwalk. The route is well-marked with several campsites and rest areas along the way. Each has a picnic table, fire pit, and access to drinking water.
Parking is available at a number of locations along the trail including at the Poinsett State Park Trailhead (6660 Poinsett Park Rd, Wedgefield), at the Campbell Creek Road Parking Area, at the Farmstead Road Trailhead (4386 McCords Ferry Rd, Eastover), and at the intersection of Highway 601 and Highway 48/Bluff Road.
