from the mountains to the sea...

The Palmetto Trail is the largest trail system in the state, and currently one of only 16 cross-state trails in the nation. The 350-miler (and growing) is built in passages, making it easier to plan your trip by your specific preference of timespan and location. The trail guides you through every facet of South Carolina landscape, from our seaports to battlefields, mountaintops and forests.

There's a mixture of primitive pathways, urban bike-ways, and rail-to-trail conversions. On foot or on bike, there's a piece of the Palmetto Trail waiting for you. The trail is managed by Palmetto Conservation, so plan your trip via their website and make sure to see if they have a special event or program going on.
