The 4.6 mile Eastatoe Passage of the Palmetto Trail opened in late 2018. This critical passage takes us one step closer to connecting the entire upstate and being able to #finishthetrail! The Eastatoe Passage offers a perfect walk in the woods — picturesque views and just strenuous enough. The passage travels along Eastatoe Creek upstream from Lake Keowee and climbs through mountain forest in the acclaimed Jocassee Gorges with its abundance of flowers, birds and wildlife. Unfortunately, the two fiberglass bridges on the Eastatoe Passage were damaged during a record setting flash flood in April of 2018, but we are excited to announce that both have been replaced with amazing suspension bridges! The newly constructed bridges will allow for rising waters during the wet season and provide hikers with a new experience along the Palmetto Trail. Our work is never done! Show your support by donating to help us pay for and maintain the newly constructed Eastatoe bridges!
