Whetstone Campground and Rocky Gap Trail
Right on the Chatooga River, this is the closest you can get to Appalachian mountain riding with the convenience of a warm camp with water, bathrooms and electrical hookups!!! You have to picket your horse, or use the tie-stalls provided. Trails go steeply up to Rocky Gap, or cross to the GA side at Adline Ford, Earl's Ford, and Big Island Ford, and connect with a group horse camp on the GA side. You wind through stately forests of huge hemlock and mountain laurel, most of which have not been cut over in many years. Animals and birds are commonly seen, and many wildflowers and mushrooms are abundant. These are popular trails that are often filled up on weekends, (NO RESERVATIONS TAKEN) but are sparsely populated during the week or off-season. Plenty of day-rider parking, and if the kids want to canoe, raft or tube down the river, that's possible close by. You will need shod animals, and in decent shape, and if the river has so much water in it that you can't see the bottom, DON'T CROSS!! Many people have drowned themselves and their horses in this river! (Take off your tie-downs!)
Directions: Take Hwy 28 up from Walhalla, at the Recycling station before the junction with 107 take Wetstone Road to the West. THIS IS NOT AN INTERSTATE - big hills and sharp curves - stay on this road thru the 4 way stop and until it becomes gravel. About a mile later the turn for the camp is to the Left, Day riders parking to the Right.
Rest: PH 803-638-9568

War Woman Creek Campground
Campground located on the other side of the Chatooga in the same general area as Whetstone.
It has power, water, and a bathhouse.
You can access the Whetstone trails by only thirty minutes of tar and gravel road riding. You can also ride more trails closer to the campground.

Parson's Mountain Horse Trails
Parson's Mountain Horse Trails, SC- Parson's Mountain is the highest hill in this mid-state area - if you ride to the fire-tower at the top there is a great view of the surrounding countryside. You cross a river and several creeks on over 50 miles of trails (some are shared with ATVs and bikers and hikers), foliage is spectacular in spring and fall, very hot and little shade in mid-summer. Most trails are open and well marked, many on gravel roads, you will need shoes on your horse/mule, safety vest in hunting season.
Directions: Take Hwy 28 towards Abbeville, slightly east of the town follow the signs to Parson's Mountain, there is a lake with picnicing, fishing, firing range and maps are available at the ranger station. Or you can park at the horse/hunt campground, there is a small overnight camping fee on your honor, but fresh water is available, some sites with electric. There are alot of hunters during hunting season, might not be much room on the weekends!

SMELTZER MOUNTAIN Horse Trails, SC - These trails go for many many miles into the back country of the Upstate, and actually connect with others in NC. They are wild, no-one improves them, no maps exist, the timber and power companies own the land and let hikers and riders use them. They are really just the logging and fire access roads that local riders have been enjoying for many years. The views of Lake Jocassee and Lake Keowee in the Golden Corner from the fire-tower hill are worth the steep climb, as is the tour of the rock quarry. You will need shod animals, a GPS or tour guide, and they need to be in good shape - very little water is available on these trails.
Directions: Hwy 11 to between Salem, SC and Lake Jocasee's Devil's Ford State Park.

Hitchcock Woods Horse Trails
Hitchcock Woods Horse Trails and Park, SC - In the very center of down-town Aiken, SC, there is a huge reserve called the Hitchcock Foundation, with over 50 miles of trails. Trails are sand so you do not need shoes, and there is no hunting, except fox-hunting with hounds on Saturdays from October to March!!! This is something to see!!! The park is criss-crossed by many mapped and marked trails, and provides riding space for trail-riders, hikers, hunter jumps and optional cross-country jumps. A guide map is available at each entrance to the park.
Directions: From I-20, take Hwy 19 into downtown Aiken. Access is available off of Whiskey Road, from the Foxchase subdivision, and off Dribble Road.

Broxton Bridge Plantation
Ehrhardt: RV camping spots, Trails, and trail rides or ride on your own. 6 miles south of Ehrhardt on Highway 601.
We are currently finishing up the construction of a very spacious and "almost" palatial bathhouse especially designed for the female riders. This new camp ground that we are completing is on a 25 foot high bluff overlooking the Salkehatchie River -- beautiful view. It is ironic that this is the same site where people 150-250 years ago used to meet and put up tents and camp for a week or 10 days the last week in June and the first week in July each year. This was after "lay-by" time with the crops and they needed lots of water for all the mules (and wagons) and horses (and buggies).

This is also right next to a battleground from the War Between the States where the south had a 12 gun battery (12 big cannons). At our re-enactment last year which was the first weekend in March, we had the Citadel cadets with 2 cannons and the 37th and 42nd Ga. Artillery Regiments and for the first time since 1865 we had 12 big cannons in the fortifications.

We have two houses, one built in 1850 and the other in 1880, that we use for B&B's. We have a total of 11 bedrooms. We have a 3200 A plantation, an airstrip, two fishing ponds, and three 100-shot sporting clays ranges complete with Wobble Tower.

We have the Breakfast Club Fly-In here in April every year. Last year we had 72 planes land and fed 180 people breakfast that morning. We have a Banquet Hall that will seat 138 people for a sit-down meal.

Woods Ferry Horse Trails - Chester County, SC
Description: The rolling hills of Sumter National Forest near Chester are home to nine miles of easy-to-moderate loops known collectively as Woods Ferry Horse Trail. The trails run over a terrain that�s primarily red clay and is a wonderful interruption from the area�s typical pine trails.
At one time, Woods Ferry was heavily logged and farmed, but in recent decades, it has returned to a hardwood canopy of poplars, maples, and sweet gums. Because Woods Ferry abuts the Broad River, a variety of animals live here. There�s a chance of seeing deer and wild turkey, in addition to redtail hawks, quail, blue heron, and even the rare osprey.

Horses must be shod. Insect repellent is recommended during warm months.
Length: 9 miles.
Fees: None

Directions: From Chester, travel west on SC 9 through Wilksburg until a junction with Chester County S-12-49.
Turn left (south) and follow to the first road on the right, Worthy�s Ferry Road (Chester County S-12-535).
Continue straight after the pavement ends to Forest Service 301C and turn left. There is an open parking area with gravel to the left. The trail begins in the parking area.
Open year-round

Camping: Woods Ferry Recreation Area includes access to eight equestrian campsites and 10 horse corrals.
Campsites include centrally located restrooms with hot showers, drinking water, tables and grills.
To find the campsite, go back out to State Road 49 and follow south to secondary road 574.
Follow northwest for almost four miles to the campground.

Hoofin for Heroes
We are "Hoofin for Heroes" and we are putting on a charity benefit rideon 5-7 Dec 08 to help support the Wounded Warrior Project. It will beheld at Double J Ranch, Whitmire SC. We would greatly appreciate you posting our event on your website "Horse and Mule Trail Guide USA". Here is some history on the Wounded Warrior Project and also how we got "Hoofin for Heroes" started. The Wounded Warrior Project began when several individuals took small,inspired actions to help others in need. One night while watching theevening news, veterans and brothers were moved by stories of the firstwounded service members returning home from Afghanistan and Iraq. Theyrealized that something needed to be done for these brave individuals beyond the brass bands and ticker tape parades.
They wanted to provide tangible support for the severely wounded to help them on the road to heal both physically and mentally. What they viewed as a small contribution compared with what the warriors had sacrificed, is now WWP's signature program; WWP backpacks delivered bedside to wounded warriors. Wounded Warrior Project is a nonprofit organization. (c) 2008 Wounded Warrior Project

The "Hoofin' for Heroes" history is similar when Diane Dillon, the ride organizer said to her husband one evening, "Can you ride a horse withoutlegs?" Brian Dillon said they should be able to as long as they canbalance themselves. She made some phone calls asking friends if they were interested in helping out. We came up with organizing a trail ride as a way to give back to them and here we are today.
This is a way of "giving back to those who have sacrificed for us".
I've attached theevent flyer to pass to those who may want to ride, donate or becomesponsors.
Feel free to contact Diane at the event or (803) 236-4976 with questions.
I can be contacted on my cell (803) 351-2726. Submitted By: Diane Click Here
