To celebrate our 1st birthday, we are partnering with Athleta and the Palmetto Conservation Foundation to give back to the trail! We will be doing trail maintenance on the Wateree Passage of the Palmetto Trail. 

Trail maintenance consists of trimming branches and trees that obstruct the trail or the views from the trail. If we have 10+ people, we will also be able to build a new part of the trail! 

Bring your regular hiking gear including lots of water and a lunch. If you have loppers or pruning shears, bring those as well. 

This is a family-friendly event, but no dogs are allowed.
