Avoid beginning hikes late in the afternoon as you may not be able to complete your hike before sundown. Navigating after dark gets tricky, and most trails are considered closed to the public after sunset unless you’re camping.
My favorite aspect of working at PCF is the opportunity to be outside, hiking or biking the Trail. The Palmetto Trail is the best 'office' I have ever had!

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.
