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.
