About Us

KC Trails is a citizens group. We are led by people who love the county and all that it offers but would love to see more. We enjoy the great outdoors.

Kershaw County is poised to be one of the premier destination communities in the state and region for active transportation and outdoor recreation.

Those words began a report produced for Eat Smart, Move More Kershaw County in 2012. That plan, endorsed by Kershaw County and the City of Camden, outlined how Kershaw County could develop more trails and paths for walking, running, biking and paddling. It also explained why.

“Increased rates of bicycling and walking in Kershaw County will help to improve the health and fitness of residents, transportation options, the local economy, and environmental conditions, while also contributing to a greater sense of community.”
