Directions to Property
Eastatoe Creek Heritage Preserve is located within the DNR's Jocassee Gorges Natural Area. To reach it, go north on US Highway 178 approximately 8 miles from its intersection with SC Highway 11 at Holly Springs. Turn left on Horsepasture Road (gravel) and follow it to the Foothills Trail parking area on the left side of the road. Walk up the road about 1/8 mile and turn left onto a roadbed with yellow blazes indicating you are on the spur trail of the Foothills Trail. Follow signs and markers as the trail follows old logging roads and descends to Eastatoe Creek. The trail length from the red gate on Horsepasture Road is 2.54 miles one way. In 2010 a trail extension with a small overlook was added to give visitors a view of the narrows.
