Look up the terrain difficulty, potential weather conditions, and places to stop for water and supplies on a longer trip. Get an estimate on how long your trip will take you. Park and National Forest rangers and PCF staff are available to help answer these questions.
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.

DON’T TOSS YOUR TRASH – not even items that are biodegradable such as banana peels. It is not good for animals to eat nonnative foods, and who wants to look at your old banana peel while it ever-so-slowly decomposes? If you packed it in, pack it out.
