Leave No Trace
Limit your impact to the land so that others can enjoy the same view. Don’t create cairns, tree blazes, or any other sign to mark the trail - people should be able to navigate their own route. The agency with the responsibility for managing the land (PCF and partners) will determine which markings are appropriate and effective.
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.

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.
