The Fall Line (or, more accurately, the Fall Zone) basically separates the Piedmont from the Coastal Plain- the Up Country from the Low Country. However, wedged in between is a separate landform region known as the Sandhills. This region is a discontinuous band of rolling, hilly land situated in por[ions of Aiken, Lexington, Richland, Kershaw, Sumter, and Chesterfield counties. It is the result of tle ocean's having come this far inland millions of years ago. Scrub oaks, pine trees, and sandy soil are the hallmarks of the landscape of this region.
