The new Eastatoe Passage construction was made possible with major grants from Duke Energy’s Water Resources Fund and the federal Recreational Trails Program administered by South Carolina Parks Recreations and Toursim. @Duke Energy funded two state-of-the-art fiberglass pedestrian bridges across Eastatoe Creek and Little Eastatoe Creek. The 70-foot span across Eastatoe Creek is now the longest fiberglass pedestrian bridge on the mountains-to-sea Palmetto Trail. Benchmark Trails of Greenville handled trail construction, with assistance from PCF Trail Coordinators, the Palmetto Conservation Corps, and volunteers. We are grateful to South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, South Carolina Parks Recreation and Tourism and Naturaland Trust for their support and partnership.
