Join us for a hike along the 10 mile Spanish Moss Trail. The story of the Spanish Moss Trail begins with the historic Magnolia Line Railroad – established in 1870. Railroad operations ceased in 2003 and in 2008 Beaufort-Jasper Water & Sewer Authority acquired the right-of-way to use as a utility corridor. In January 2011, they granted a surface easement to Beaufort County to develop of the corridor as a recreational trail.
As this is an old low country rail line, the walk is flat. The only requirement is to be able to walk ten miles at about 3 miles per hour.
Directions will be set to those who register. The intent is to meet in Port Royal, and park half the cars at the end, then drive the other half of the cars to the beginning 10 miles north. At the end of the walk those who parked at the end will shuttle walkers to the start. We are doing this as a morning event in case anyone wants to enjoy lunch in Beaufort or Port Royal after the walk.
