Hike The Boardwalk To Nowhere At Congaree National Park In South Carolina For A Magical Woodland Adventure
Newcomers to South Carolina may not be aware the Palmetto State is home to one of the 61 protected National Parks in the U.S. Just 16 short years ago, in 2003, the area now known as Congaree National Park was officially named part of the National Park Service. With 26,276 acres that includes the largest tract of old growth bottomland hardwood forest in the country, Congaree has some enormous trees that are worthy of seeking out.
