Foothills Trail Interactive Map

The Foothills Trail stretches from its western terminus in Oconee State Park (Oconee County, SC) and extends north for 77 miles to Table Rock State Park (Pickens County, SC).

In the fall of 2020, hiking enthusiast, Andrew Gleason, thru-hiked the entire Foothills Trail for the purpose of obtaining GPS locations along the way.  He spent months compiling the data and created a user-friendly google map to help other hikers plan the best route for their journey.

The fact that it’s “interactive” means users can select the features they want to see at various points along the trail including:

  • Trail access points
  • Water sources
  • Waypoints
  • Cell service areas
  • Color coded campsites
    • DARK GREEN are designated campsites
    • LIGHT GREEN are good campsites close to water
    • ORANGE are dry campsites, no water nearby
    • BLACK are located in a no camping zones

The Foothills Trail Interactive Map is a great tool for trip planning

Bonus: It’s free!  Thank you, Andrew Gleason 🥾

This is an amazing resource, thanks! Can I assume that campsites are “legal” and not on private property or otherwise in a “no camping” area? I just wanted to be sure. I’m hiking from Table Rock southwards and I know you can’t camp trailside within TRSP.

Thanks for this great work. Is there anyway to get this in a KMZ file so it can be put in Google Earth? Thanks!
