About the Lynch’s Woods Passage
Lynch’s Woods Park is a well-kept secret tucked behind a strip of businesses off Hwy 76 on the south side of the charming city of Newberry. Created by the 1930s Civilian Conservation Corps, the park protects 276 acres of woodlands full of old-growth hardwoods and the rambling Rock Branch Creek and tributaries. The Palmetto Trail shares 3 miles of a 6-mile equestrian trail around the park, which also boasts 7.5 miles of mountain biking with twisted turns, short hills, and technical creek crossings.
Take I-26 to Exit 76 (SR 219) toward Newberry. Turn left onto US Hwy 76. Go approximately 1 mile and turn left at Lynch’s Woods sign next to Ford dealership. Follow the road into the park and follow traffic signs. The Palmetto Trail kiosk is by the restrooms and picnic shelter.
Two primitive campsites for hikers, and Camp Holly Springs for equestrians.
The Palmetto Trail shares an equestrian trail.
