I’on Swamp Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This easy loop hike is an interpretive trail through the coastal wetlands of South Carolina. The self-guided tour is lined with interpretive signs that mark an interesting system of canals that were once used by slaves in the 1700s to harvest and transport rice that was grown in the nearby plantation fields. The I’on Swamp Trail parallels these canals and is now a haven for wildlife.

Summers are very hot and humid in the Charleston area, and the insects are quite aggressive (particularly in the evenings), so take insect repellent when hiking at this time of year. Both hikers and their hounds will enjoy the wildlife, and the trail is well marked and easy to follow. There are numerous wooden bird boxes placed throughout the wetlands that support a wide variety of bird species including the wood duck, the warbler, and the blue heron. Hikers may also notice numerous snakes, turtles, and alligators that cruise the drainages next to the trail."
