The WTG began in August 2008 when two residents met with the WPPOA to discuss what could be done to improve and better define several nature trails within Woodside. Subsequent to that meeting we began working with both the WPPOA and the Woodside Development Company to define the existing trails, make significant improvements, and to mark the trails with signs and blazes so that our residents could easily follow the routes. We also developed a brochure and maps describing the trails. These brochures have been replaced by the maps and trail descriptions contained on this site.
The WTG has now evolved into a 75-member loosely organized group who keep in touch by email. We organize work parties to help improve & maintain the trails and also organize occasional hikes on our trails and on other trails in the Aiken vicinity. We maintain or are associated with five trails within or just outside the Woodside community. These are Creek Walk, Oakman Trail, Millroad Trail, Hollow Creek Trail and Village Trail. Downloadable descriptions and maps of these trails can be downloaded. For a basic overview, click here. For detailed descriptions, click here.
If you are interested in joining the WTG please call Jim Pierce at 803-634-0513, leave your email address and you will be added to our email list. Happy trails to you!
May is a great time for hiking the Hollow Creek Trail. Below are some photos from this trail, taken on May 9, 2016.
