Without enough water, your body simply can’t perform as well. If you feel thirsty, your body is already becoming dehydrated. It is hard to drink too much water when you’re physically exerting yourself. Carry plenty of water and remember your pack will get lighter as the day wears on.
Santee Cooper has proudly supported development of the Palmetto Trail since its inception. ...We congratulate Palmetto Conservation Foundation for continuing this living spotlight on South Carolina's natural beauty and abundant ecological resources.

LEAVE WHAT YOU FIND. The only souvenirs a hiker should come home with are photographs and happy memories. (And maybe an improved fitness level!)
