Near Awendaw in the Francis Marion National Forest, the Swamp Fox Trail is a wide singletrack (26 mi.) passes through diverse habitat types (pine stands, hardwoods..) along old railroad trams. Due to the lowlands, it can get boggy after good rains.

To reach mountain biking at the eastern trailhead from Charleston, proceed north on US 17 to Steed Creek Road (SR133S) near Awendaw. Just beyond Steed Creek Road is the trailhead on the left.

Overall, Swamp Fox National Recreation Trail is the 5th most popular mountain bike trail of all 16 mountain biking rides in South Carolina.
