The first phase of mountain bike trails on Stumphouse Mountain in Oconee County is officially open! Six miles of trails are already accessible and ten total should be completed by the end of the year, linking the town of Walhalla to the Palmetto Trail.

Built and managed by the Palmetto Conservation Foundation, the scenic Palmetto Trail is one of 16 cross-state trails in the United States and is recognized regionally and nationally as a visitor-friendly attraction.

The park is adjacent to historic Stumphouse Tunnel and picturesque Issaqueena Falls, two well-known attractions in Oconee County. The Stumphouse Passage trailhead is located in the falls parking area. The passage provides access to the trails in the 400-acre park.

Upstate Forever is honored to hold the conservation easement on this beautiful property and we are grateful for the many partners and sponsors who made possible this exciting project to improve access to nature in the Upstate.
