To all of our trail users please be advised that the Palmetto Trail has incurred extensive damage from the ice storm all the way from Newberry County to the Upstate.  We are in the early stages of assessment but please exercise extreme caution and we will try to post closures and updates.  We will be scheduling clean up days and will need all the help we can get so contact us at info@palmettoconservation.org or (803)771-0870. 
Thank you,
