The newest trail addition to the Poinsett State Park trail system, the Swamp Fox is stacked onto the Whippoorwill trail. Length is 2.9 miles. Much of it skirts the edges of Campbell Creek's swampy valleys with some open firebreak sections that are faster. Trail is open and ready to ride. Follow the spanish moss colored tree blazes. (Gray with a bit of olive green)
