The Palmetto Trail

Many hikers know of the Mountains to the Sea Trail in North Carolina but few have heard of the Palmetto Trail. The planned 425 mile route from the South Carolina mountains to the coast, has several "passages" completed. Just as interesting as it's northern counterpart but much less publicized, this promises to be one of the better long distance trails in the east.

Begun in 1994 this trail will run through fifteen counties. The vision of Kit Smith, the trail currently has eight sections open. The Lake Moultrie passage, High hills, Swamp Fox, Sumter, Fort Jackson, Lynches Woods, Eutaw and our favorite, The Blue Wall Passage.
