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. The bridges were displaced from their footings, but thankfully, they are not beyond repair. The nature of the damage and the difficult terrain means getting equipment to the area and making the needed repairs is going be both challenging and costly. We need your help! Let’s Re-Connect Eastatoe! Starting immediately, we will begin executing a three-phase plan to Remove, Inspect, and Reinstall the two bridges displaced by the flood. These critical repairs will pave the way to complete one of the longest new sections of the Palmetto Trail in the Upstate.
