The teal blazed Cowasee is a twisty trail that takes the rider off of the Scout/Palmetto Trail doubletrack. It begins where the Whippoorwill trail ends in the counterclockwise direction and ends near the parking lot. The counterclockwise direction is a gradual downhill for much of the trail. Ride it today Look for more trails planned in the future!
