We came here as part of the city's Civil War geocaching tour. We wouldn't have known about this place otherwise, it is a little secluded and out of the way. There's a paved lot and a nice trail between the river and the woods. It...More

In the Spring it is beautiful. The boardwalk takes you to a lookout over a lake. At the right time you may see egrets in plumage nesting in the trees.

Beautiful hiking along the river and swamp areas. It's free and pet friendly. It's a great way to spend a weekend afternoon.

There are many paths to take, and not many visitors. The bug level was very low, and it has very beautiful scenery. We went twice because it was such a good nature experience.

This is one of the nicest natural area we have visited. A number of trails meander through forest and meadow. A nice variety of birds for the calendar period we were there, late January. Watch out for the numerous fire ant mounds.

First trip to Congaree Creek Heritage Preserve. Don't confuse it with Congaree National Monument which is not too far away. Congaree Creek is very natural. Except for a few (sometimes too few) trail markers and the occasional bridge, very little is done to improve the...More
