Keep Your Kit Up-To-Date
Inspect your emergency and first aid kits before each hike, and replace consumed items before hitting the trail.
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.

STAY ON THE TRAIL. Walk through the mud or puddle and not around it, unless you can do so without going off the trail. Widening a trail by going around puddles, etc. is bad for trail sustainability. Just because it looks easy to cut the corner off of a switchback doesn’t mean it is a good idea. Help preserve the trail by staying on the trail.
