Palmetto Trail

Imagine more than 425 miles of hiking and bicycling paths beside lakes, across mountain ridges, through forests, into towns big and small. What better way to explore the natural beauty and local color of South Carolina?

Conceived in 1994, South Carolina’s Palmetto Trail is the state’s largest bicycle and pedestrian project and will run from the mountains to the sea.This federally designated Millennium Legacy Trail is the signature project of the Palmetto Conservation Foundation. It is one of only 16 cross-state trails in the United States.

The Palmetto Trail is two-thirds complete with nearly 290 miles open to the public.The trail is being built as a series of “passages.” Each of the passages open are accessible for single-day or multi-day trips. Eventually the trail will form a spine for a network of trails and bikeways in South Carolina.

The Pickens COunty portion of the trail can be accessed at Table Rock State Park.
