On the Congaree River, this park is the largest portion of old-growth floodplain forest left in North America. Some of the trees are the tallest in the Eastern US, and the Boardwalk Loop is an elevated walkway through the swamp.

The trail was gorgeous, with lots of cover so that even on a hot day it didn't feel so bad. There are lots of downed trees to climb over, including one section that became nearly impossible to pass due to the number and location of the fallen trees, but ultimately the hike was worth it and it made a nice change of pace.

Simple boardwalk loop. Congaree is nice for a swampy area, (not my favorite scenery) but it had its unique beauties. As of 8/27, there are lots of banana spiders and other little spiders.

It's a nice walk but hardly a hike. Great for little kids, very nice boardwalk.

Nice, bring bug spray! Very easy trail but lots of downed trees in trail path.
