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.
I've hiked from Awendaw to Columbia, learned a lot, and met some interesting characters. I've done all the open passages in the Upcountry and hope to do all the remaining sections.

DON'T FEED THE WILDLIFE. While many animals stay hidden, others are not so shy. Giving food to these creatures only disrupts their natural foraging habits.
