Palmetto Conservation Foundation unveils trail though Columbia

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

It's a trail in our state that will stretch from the mountains to the coast and Columbia is right in the heart of it.

The Palmetto Conservation Foundation held an unveiling of the passage that will go through Columbia. 

The trail will connect with existing passages established on the Palmetto Trail.

It will link numerous communities, destinations and recreational opportunities along the way.

"It also gives people the chance to visit small towns that they've never thought about visiting, great places to eat. We go through revolutionary war battlefields," said Natalie Britt with the Palmetto Conservation Foundation. "So, I think the project as a whole tells the story of South Carolina better than any other singular project."

The cross-state trail was originally envisioned in 1994. The plan has been sponsored by the Boeing Company and South Carolina Parks Recreation and Tourism.
