This trail begins on the ADA boardwalk leading to the overlook at Horseshoe Falls. From there, you’ll go out to the battlefield area and come across interpretive waysides of the American Revolutionary War Battle of Musgrove Mill which occurred on August 19, 1780.
You’ll run along the Enoree River for most of the way. Again, this trail has interpretive waysides that educate about the homestead of the Musgrove family, the British Encampment in the summer of 1780, 18th century transportation, and the gristmill that was located on the river.
This 1.5-mile trail was once a direct route for traders and trappers, Native Americans, and settlers to exchange merchandise between the backcountry and the Carolina coast. You can hike the existing Cherokee Path at Ninety Six just as the Native Americans did.
This paved trail provides station-by-station interpretation of this important crossroads in American history. It leads into the Star Fort, which is still intact, and connects with paths that the Cherokee and Redcoats once walked.
