Summary:
I started at the North Trailhead Sedalia Campground and in one day actually made it to Brick House Campground! It was a full on adventure for 22 miles. This was a difficult effort to put it mildly. I have the scrapes on my legs to prove it. I started at 10:30 and was getting my camp site at Brick House around 6:30. A lot of debris and general lack of trail maintenance. However, in my opinion you have to get into the spirit of the Palmetto Trail here. Even after the first 1/2 mile I knew that the sense of accomplishment and the scenery were going to be my true rewards. And they were! Totally remote mountain biking relying on your own fitness, patience, and sense of adventure. I'm 53 years old and I can't tell you how awesome I feel having made this ride! It was really tough to follow the yellow blazes and even find the trail in dozens of places...but I was relentless. A wall of Kudzu in my path, sticker bushes, hard terrain, and bike packing a full load over maybe a hundred downed trees. Not to mention hundreds of spider webs that day. Who knows? My point is the nature buzz was super and I didn’t see one person on the trail the entire day (labor day weekend). Not for everyone for sure. In Sumter National Forest the maps online proved invaluable as I used a park service road or two to skirt a few 'jungle miles.' Hey, I could make any decision I wanted and did my best to give credit that the trail was even there and could be ridden. A lunch stop on the bridge over the Enoree River was not to be missed for me...what a feeling to emerge from the jungle and relax and regroup in such a sweet remote location. Not 1/2 mile later I spent maybe 30 minutes thinking I would have to turn back because I simply could not find the trail any longer. You know the rest, I did find it and on I slowly went! I back packed a few sections of the John Muir Trail out of Yosemite last year and had to work even harder (high altitudes) to earn the views over Donahue pass and Thousand Island Lake. That adventure helped me mentally prepare come to find out. Get in the spirit and try this, it was a true challenge. It’s made me stronger and will make you stronger too! btw, From Brick House mile marker 14 to zero the horse trail is much easier. I rode back to my car at Sedalia Campground via a different route. Also, a Forest Visitor Permit is needed so call ahead.

Recommended Route:
Sedalia Campground (marker 36) to Brick House Recreational Area (14) then the easier part is from 14 to 0.

Summary:
Enoree Passage of the Palmeto Trail, Section 1 starting at Brick House:

This trail sucks. Unless you live a mile away I woud not recommend driving any distance to ride here. Its a shame this is part of the Palmetto Trail, as I had really high hopes for it. The trail has a lot of horse traffic, which has chopped it up quite a bit, and needless to say there are steaming piles all over the place. Boasting very bad drainage, the trail becomes extremely muddy which makes it very difficult to ride and absolutely no fun at all. The trail is not kept up with, and there are many fallen trees that require you to hop off your over priced, but super-sweet bike and step across. Dont ride here unless all horses in the world have died and there has been a drought which has lasted longer than a month or two.

Recommended Route:
Somewhere else.
