With water pooling on both sides of the trail, travelers will witness a wide array of wildlife, from the wood duck to the yellowbelly slider turtle and the great blue heron. Alligators float in the serene pools alongside the trail, while a river offers occasionally scoots across the scenic footpath.
Note: The trail is open to hikers and day use only - no camping permitted. No digging permitted. During temperate months, be prepared for biting insects and high temperatures. Be advised of big game and waterfowl hunting seasons. Avoid using the trail during excessively wet periods. From December through March a large portion of the trail may be submerged to provide habitat for waterfowl.
Directions: From Charleston, Take US Hwy. #17 north to I'on Swamp Rd (Forest Rd #228). Turn left and drive 2 miles to the trailhead on the left.
