The Peak to Prosperity Passage proceeds west from the Alston Trailhead in Fairfield County across the impressive Broad River trestle. The view from the 1,100-foot-long bridge is spectacular, especially when bald eagles soar. Across the river in Newberry County, the rail-trail skirts Peak and cuts an easy swath through piedmont forest to Pomaria and Prosperity. Along the passage, 14 wooden trestles span the meandering Crims Creek where German immigrants settled in the 1730s. The area is known as the Dutch Fork.

Using the railbanking process, Palmetto Conservation purchased the 11-mile, 200-foot wide right-of-way for the passage from Norfolk Southern Railroad. Thanks to SC Parks, Recreation & Tourism for funds to convert the river trestle to a passage treadway, and to Fairfield County for funds to develop the Alston trailhead park.

The first  miles of the passage were opened in 2009 after two volunteers, Charles Weber and Furman Miller, cleared and decked eight trestles. A grant from SCPRT allowed the team to deck and add handrails to the 1,100-foot-long bridge over the Broad River.

This is a Rain or Shine Event!  No Refunds.  Must be 12 Years or older to participate.  No Strollers Please.  Dogs on a leash are welcome!

About RJ Rockers

Palmetto Conservation Foundation and RJ Rockers Brewing Company have combined their respective passions and have brought to market the quality handcrafted Palmetto Trail Ale that will help support the Palmetto Trail.

"Our slogan is HANDCRAFTED. EVERY BEER. EVERY DROP. EVERY TIME. And we aren't kidding either. Mark makes every batch with his own hands in our facility. He knows exactly what goes into the beer, and it is quality ingredients. He cares about what he makes."

“We understand not everyone drinks beer, but we appreciate those that know good beer. We are not a big beer company, and we don't merit ourselves mainly on huge promotions and large public events (although we are involved). We merit ourselves on beer. Any establishment that recognizes that fact is an establishment we want to be in. We don't want to be disconnected. We want to be right there with the people who drink our beer. After all, without them we are nothing.
