Saluda Mountain Passage - Preview

Great news on the trail front for the state of SC. It seems the diligent folks at the Palmetto Conservation Foundation have been hard at work extending the Palmetto Trail in the upstate. The Saluda Mountain Passage is a 9.1 mile section starting at Orchard Lake Campground. It looks to be a continuation of the Blue Wall & Poinsett Reservoir Passage.  
Last fall I teamed up with some trail running buddies and explored the Blue Wall & Poinsett Reservoir Passages. The out and back combination made for an 18 mile journey through the leaf covered trails. Cool to have a trail system like such in place around the state. This combo could become an Ultra distance run in the future. Looking forward to exploring this section come fall.
