Wambaw Creek Wilderness Area Kayak & Canoe Trail

September 14, 2017 @ 8:30 AM - 1:30 PM

This is a Nationally Recognized and Designated Trail located in the heart of the protected Wambaw Creek Wilderness Area in the Francis Marion National Forest.  This beautiful blackwater creek is a tributary to the Santee River and was paddled by the Santee and coastal Plain Indians for thousands of years.  The creek is surrounded by a seasonal floodplain swamp where giant 1,000 year old Bald Cypress trees can be seen in the upper section and Water Tupelo, Water Oak, Water Ash, Red Maple, and Swamp Dogwood shade the banks of its pristine black waters.  It offers spectacular birding and wildlife viewing.  Banks of the river reflect geological precedence of the rice era where historical earthen dikes give way to a flooded subtropical forest of abandoned rice fields once owned by prosperous rice plantations.
