I never realized how much work and dedication are necessary to establish and maintain the Palmetto Trail. I thought the wonderful rock walls, steps, blow downs, blazes, and trail marking signs magically appeared, until I began working as a volunteer with Jim Majors…. My work on the Trail is a labor of love. It gives me a great sense of pride when passing hikers smile and tell me 'thank you.'
