Activities

Ideal for bicycling, the scenic Peach Country Passage is routed from Inman to Landrum along back roads dotted with peach orchards. Past the sidewalks of Inman and Chapman High School, cyclists and hikers climb Windmill Hill, the highest point of the passage. At Gramling (mile 5), a small store across US Hwy 176 welcomes Trail users. The numerous peach orchards are spectacular when blooming in spring, and remind one of the history and importance of the peach packing industry in the area. Except for a quarter mile on the Cherokee Foothills Scenic Highway (SC Hwy 11) near Campobello, the Trail stays on lightly traveled rural roads. At the end of the final mile through Brookwood Park into Landrum, the Trail connects to the Blue Wall Passage. Turn left and head downtown for unique shops, quaint eateries, and charming B&B inns. Trailheads in Inman, Gramling, and Landrum offer parking and Trail information kiosks.
