The Habitat Loop at Caw Caw Interpretive Center uses a network of trails traversing a variety of habitats to deliver an all-encompassing overview of Lowcountry flora and fauna. The sheer number of trails will ensure repeat visits to this preserve. The trails are as varied as the terrain, using boardwalks over swamps, narrow natural-surface paths in deep woods, and open grassy tracks atop dikes. There are a total of 8 miles of trails at Caw Caw, which comes in at 654 acres. Two centuries ago the site was part of a 5,000-plus-acre rice plantation. A nature-oriented county park, Caw Caw offers extensive environmental education programs covering habitats, plants, rice cultivation, Gullah culture, and natural resource management, among other subjects.
