Walkers

  • Meet in Peak (park across the street from the Peak Pharmacy) at 1:00 PM.
  • We will begin walking at 1:15 PM. Approximate walking time will be 4 hours.
  • Wear comfortable shoes and socks (no open toed shoes), as the trail is an old railroad bed and is quite rocky.

    • Peak to Broad River Road underpass and
    • back to Peak: 2.2 miles
    • Peak to Hope Station Rd. crossing: 3.8 miles
    • Peak to Wilson’s Grocery, Pomaria: 6.5 miles
    • Peak to Kiblers Bridge Rd. crossing (near Mid-Carolina Country Club): 10 miles
      Note: For the last 3 options, we hope to have volunteers available to shuttle you back to Peak.
  • Information about the Palmetto Trail (and a map of the Peak to Prosperity Passage) can be found at: palmettoconservation.org/passage/peak-to-prosperity-passage/
  • Bring along a water bottle and any snacks/energy bars/etc. that you might prefer.
  • Realize that there are no restrooms on the trail itself.
    • We might be able to provide volunteers to shuttle walkers to St. John’s Lutheran at mile marker 3.8
    • Wilson’s Grocery is at mile marker 6.5
