Edisto Nature Trail Description

The Edisto Nature Trail loops through a forest maintained by WestRock (formerly Westvaco Corporation), a paper and packaging manufacturer. The main loop is 1 mile, and an inner loop adds 0.5 mile. Both sections of the trail wind through a typical lowcountry forest, which includes mature pines, hardwoods and baldcypress.

Grab a brochure at the trailhead for a self-guided tour and learn about the nearly 60 varieties of flora and fauna. A section of the trail winds through a cypress swamp atop an old railroad bed, which provides an excellent view of the forest. Other interesting landmarks include the historic King's Highway, an old railroad tram and an old phosphate operation.

Edisto Beach State Park and Colleton State Park are nearby. For more information:

Edisto Nature Trail Reviews

Closed for Maintenance

Made the drive out hoping to get out for a walk with the kids but the gate is locked and a sign says it is closed.

Relaxing

A great short trail after riding for awhile. Peaceful, relaxing, and perfect for a short burst of nature.

closed

we drove to this trail a few days ago and found that it has been closed since September 2016

Fun Walk

Went on 1st Day of New Year. Not a lot to see other than wetlands, birds. Winter in SC you wont see Gators and Snakes. It is about a mile. Not good for dogs unless you want a muddy dog. Also a lot of the trail is raised on wood so it can be very slick due to moldy wood.

Accordion

okay

Was outdors alittle slippery in spits. My pedometer on phone mark it .69 miles
