Half a day's walk through the wetlands of the Combahee River basin, in the Combahee Unit of the ACE Basin National Wildlife Refuge. This is a good trail for viewing waterfowl of all kinds. The trail runs on dikes among canals left over from the region’s rice-growing days. Beginning at the parking area, it first passes between green, duckweed-covered ponds, but quickly reaches a lovely canal. Cross the canal on a wooden bridge and turn left (southeast) onto the dike path. The tea-black waters of the canal on the left beautifully set off the white spider lilies overhanging it.
