Hello everyone! My name is Robyne and I have a passion for hiking. I have put it off for some time but I am getting ready to embark on an adventure on the Palmetto Trail. For about twenty years, I have wanted to hike the Appalachian Trail but since I have waited so long, I think it might be wise to start off a little bit slowly. I’m 54 and live in Charleston, SC. Only a few miles north of me is Awendaw, SC which lies on the edge of the Francis Marion National Forest. This the beginning of one of the easiest parts of the Palmetto Trail. This would be a nice start for an older gal like me.
