Carolina Bay Hike

Carolina Bay Hike Professional Review and Guide

"This hike starts at a primitive national forest campground and follows South Carolina’s master path—the Palmetto Trail— through upland woods, then joins an old logging railroad grade, passing through a Carolina bay, one of the unusual oval-shaped wetlands extending through the Carolinas and beyond to New Jersey and down to Florida.

After passing through the bay, you then traverse wooded swampland, still on the railroad grade. The hike then emerges at a forest road that makes for a good place to turn around."
