Croft Passage of the Palmetto Trail


Croft Passage is a roller coaster for hikers, cyclists, and equestrians (watch signs for designated areas) through historic Croft State Park. Near the southern trailhead, the 65-foot “Advance America” Bridge—the longest trail bridge in a state park—crosses Fairforest Creek. In the 1700s, the nearby shoals supported a hub of mills, trading, and political activity, including the area’s first governmental organization, the Spartan Militia District. The northern trailhead marks the site of a Revolutionary militia victory at the First Battle of Cedar Springs in 1780. The park is best known as Camp Croft, a World War II Army training center. A ¾-mile hike on a blue-blazed trail spur leads to Whitestone Springs, site of a 1902 resort hotel. Croft Passage connects Hub City and Glenn Springs Passages NOTICE: Due to the recent flooding in the Upstate, the Advance America Bridge along the Croft Passage has been washed away. The bridge was located between the southern trailhead and mile marker 1 and crossed over Fairforest Creek.
