Poinsett Reservoir Passage of the Palmetto Trail

What's new:

Updated Legend


Poinsett Reservoir Passage travels the mountain ridges along the northern boundary of Poinsett Watershed. This pristine watershed of 19,000 acres contains the headwaters feeding Poinsett Reservoir of the Greenville Water System (GW). Rare plants and animals inhabit this unique watershed, and GW enforces strict rules to keep the environment unspoiled. Starting at Vaughns Gap (trailhead for Blue Wall Passage), hikers travel north for about two miles, turn west and trek along Bushy Ridge (border between the Carolinas), then cross into North Carolina for a short hike to Orchard Lake Campground (trailhead for Saluda Mountains Passage). At 3,060 feet, Rocky Spur is the highest peak on the passage.
