Know Your Ablilities
Plan a hike that is suitable for everyone in your party and let the slowest hiker set the pace. Remember that when traveling as a group, you are only as fast as the slowest person.
The Palmetto Conservation Foundation is an exceptional steward of one of South Carolina's finest resources--the Palmetto Trail.

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.
