Just 3.5 miles and a 10-minute drive from Wofford’s campus is a recreational asset unique to Spartanburg. The Cottonwood Trail—a 115 acre preserve created by SPACE- The Spartanburg area Conservancy for the preservation of the Lawson’s Fork Creek—creates a buffer from the fast-growing urban city and a recreation opportunity for students, citizens, and nature-enthusiasts.
With 5 miles of trail available, runners and pet-owners enjoy the area as a break from the hustle and bustle of Spartanburg’s downtown. The asset has been well received by many community organizations including Boy Scout Troops, Spartanburg High School and Wofford College.
Regardless of your outdoor experience, the Cottonwood Trail is beneficial to all members of the community as a wildlife sanctuary and center for creative rejuvenation. Before you decide on that next stroll across campus- look a few miles further to the Cottonwood Trail and all of its benefits.
