This hike may have more highlights per foot than any other trail in this guide. This national recreation trail just off the Edisto River mixes human and natural history as you traverse the Old Charleston Road, the Kings Highway, and a former railroad bed through incredibly lush rich bottomland forest. Visit the site of old Jacksonboro, a rice dike, and an old phosphate mine and plant, barely discernable these days. Natural highlights include a long boardwalk over swamp wetland to a braid of the Edisto River, huge live oaks, wildflowers, and a plethora of everywhere-you-look beauty.
