1997 Jim and Sandra Schmid walk with Sandra’s parents on the Edisto Nature Trail, Jacksonboro, SC

When we found trails near Charleston, SC where Sandra’s parents live we always enjoyed taking them to experience South Carolina nature with us. The Edisto Nature Trail is south of Charleston on Hwy 17 and was built by Westvaco a local paper company. We first discovered it when I was researching my 1989 SC Rail-Trail Thesis because a section of the trail is on an old rail bed. It’s a 1.5 mile loop so we usually stopped when in the area to stretch our legs.
