“A tranquil trail for the runner who wants solitude. One of the most biodiverse trails in SC.”
— Christian Smrekar
Birding · River/Creek
Pets must be on a leash. No bicycles. Fishing is permitted with a valid SC fishing license.
The trail is well marked and like the rest of Congaree has very little change in elevation. This trail offers incredible biodiversity packed in a short, 3.3-mile package. Most of the trail features large hardwoods like cherry ark oak, sweet gum, elm, and ash averaging well over 100ft in height but there are also stretches of bald cypress and water tupelo sloughs, forest of giant loblolly pines, and the picturesque dark tannin-filled waters of Cedar Creek. There are several places where you'll have to go over, under, or around trees that have fallen over the trail, but other than that, it is an easy run.
