Been trying to do this hike, in it's entirety, for a couple weeks. Major flooding of the Congaree River has prevented that, until today.
The Kingsnake Trail took me into a very remote area of Congaree National Park. Now, you want to talk about feeling alone in the wild? This was it! The trail was somewhat challenging today because of the recent flooding, but really only because of the slickness of the trail surface. It just slowed me down, which was a good thing because my slow progression allowed me to see many, many birds. Wicked awesome!
This day hike is a little long at 11.7 miles, and not something you'll want to take your toddlers on, but if you want to take a long walk through a hardwood bottomland that is unlike anything else in the world...try it, you'll like it.
