Experience the natural wonders of the Congaree National Park as you enjoy a 2.5-mile walk along the boardwalk. As we venture deep into the forest, we’ll view the Weston Lake and other trails that wind through the Congaree floodplain. Congaree offers visitors more than 25 miles of hiking trails where you can explore deep into the Congaree wilderness. The park preserves the oldest tract of old growth bottomland hardwood forest left in the United States. We will stop to enjoy lunch at a local restaurant after our tour. Following lunch, we’ll stop at Swan Lake Iris Gardens, home to the only public park in the US to feature all eight swan species and the most intensive plantings of Japanese Iris in the US. Lunch on your own. Departure time is 8 a.m.
