I'on Swamp Interpretive Trail is a 2 mile loop trail located near Awendaw, SC that offers the chance to see wildlife and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and walking and is accessible from April until December.
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.
We didn't finish. Even on a cool October day with bug spray the bugs were relentless. GPs is wrong. Once you leave the highway, stay on that road. Trail head will come up on your left. Don't turn left.
Pretty, but disappointing - wildlife not in evidence. Terrible GPS directions from within app, but looked at recent hiker map to find trail head.
Great, short hike. Saw a mom and baby gator swimming around in the canal. Parts of the trail were a little overgrown but personally it added to adventure.
is this trail stroller accessible?
Eerily beautiful. Simple. Spotted a gator about 7 feet away! Wouldn't bring an animal who doesn't listen to commands. Also, wear rain boots (very soggy in some places) and definitely bring bug spray!
Very nice walk in spring, fall and winter. Easy loop to stroll along. Pet friendly. Not crowded. Parts of the trail can be flooded out if it's rained allot recently. All wooded= shady. Interpretive signs along trail. As with any trail in lowcountry.... Bring bug spray.
Great hike through South Carolina history... Walking along inland rice fields from the 1700s.
Great hike! And easy for kids too.
This is a great scenic trail through the swamp however not very stoller friendly for those of you with toddlers. There are signs that inform about history as well as the land.
