Canebrake Road is an easy 1 to 1.5-lane trail that runs through the Laurel Fork Heritage Preserve within the Jim Timmerman Natural Resources Area in Jocassee Gorges. Canebrake Road is open to vehicle traffic only during the legal hunting season, roughly the first weekend in September through the end of January.
The trail offers scenic forest views and access to several hiking trails and hunting grounds. It's less traveled than the popular and often crowded Horse Pasture Road. Combine Canebrake with Jackie's Ridge and Dawkin's Flat to rejoin Horse Pasture Road just east of Jumping Off Rock. High clearance 2WD is required, with 4WD recommended.
Canebrake Road doesn't have any designated campsites. However, the nearby Foothills Trail does have designated campsites.
