Mary Black Rail Trail

The Mary Black Rail Trail is part of the envisioned Palmetto Trail, a 425 mile long hiking path across South Carolina that will eventually link mountains to coast. The Mary Black segment is part of an urban corridor running through Spartanburg in Spartanburg county.  A plant list describing the vascular flora of this surprisingly diverse section within Spartanburg will be available soon.
