Description

A fascinating walk through a wetland world, this historic, self-guided interpretive trail traverses embankments built by humans dating back to the 1700's. The embankments and ditches were built to create a patchwork of fields or impoundments for rice production during the lucrative rice era of the lowcountry. Interpretive signs inform visitors of the history of this magnificent swamp.

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 liver otters occasionally scoots across the scenic footpath.
