Hwy. 81 got 10 feet off the front at one time and Hwy. 72 got it all.

RIDING THE RAILS,

 Using the old C&WC Rail Road Bed for a short trip back to the barn in town......

Here is a recent picture using the Old Railroad Trail on a return trip to Calhoun Falls, S.C. from Lake Russell Dam OverLook. We are Crossing Golden Hill Dirt Road going north from south side of Calhoun Falls.

Rails or gravel on RR bed are gone
 Tri S Ranch was hired to remove the old rails C&WC from Calhoun Falls to Iva,SC decades ago. We have used this RR system for many things since.
  
 When finished, will be one of the largest horse trail riding/over night trail system in the country.
 Special thanks to the US Army Corps of Engineers help, all the private land owners, US Land, S.C. Commerce Department, Investors, Calhoun Falls State Park, Mohawk, volunteers, the gentleman's agreements granted, and Beulah Land Ranch, for their gracious cooperation which makes all this possible.
