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!
