The Palmetto Trail, a gift to South Carolina to encourage and inspire active, outdoor recreation, land conservation, and preservation of historical and cultural landmarks.
Our state's most treasured and attractive state resource--the Palmetto Trail--finds itself among the distinct aroma of our Lowcountry tidal basins, the gentle flow of our rolling Sandhills, the intoxicating murkiness of our sleepy rivers, and the spectacular sights from our majestic mountains....It is why we refuse to leave and outsiders decide to stay.

The Trail is meant to bring people together—young and old, rich and poor. It’s not just for hard core backpackers, but for families who want to get out into the woods.
