New section of Spanish Moss Trail paved, open to public

The Friends of the Spanish Moss Trail has announced that the Spanish Moss Trail – between Poppy Hill Road and the Clarendon Road Trailhead – is now fully paved in concrete allowing for an uninterrupted 20.4 mile round-trip experience.

This long-awaited section of the Trail remained unpaved for three years while the Marine Corps Air Station and Clarendon Plantation came to an agreement to allow the Trail to be completed in this area. Their agreement was finalized in late August and concrete was poured in mid-October.

“The owners of Clarendon have been very generous to our community allowing the Spanish Moss Trail to run through their property for the enjoyment of the more than 40,000 people who are using the Trail each year,” Executive Director of the Friends of the Spanish Moss Trail Dean Moss said. “This newly paved section has been an important priority for the Friends as we know there has been strong public demand for its completion.”
