Tell a Friend Your Plan
Leave your hike plan with someone back home and call them when you get off the trail. Tell them when you’re leaving and when you expect to be back.
One of my life's greatest joys has been the chance to hike often on the Palmetto Trail. Each Trail experience with friends and family is filled with adventure and memories that will last a lifetime.

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.
