Congaree Creek – Cayce, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Lexington County Photos  |  Congaree Creek

Congaree Creek Heritage Preserve is located just outside Columbia, bordering the Congaree River and Cayce. It is a 627-acre park with over 12,000 years of history. A portion of the historic Cherokee Trail runs through the preserve.

The trail led from the Appalachian mountains to the coast. Archaeologists have found tools, pottery, and arrowheads in the Congaree Preserve which are believed to be from Native Americans who traveled through this area.

There is a 3-mile hiking trail loop at the park where you can enjoy a variety of flora and fauna. The Guignard Brickworks Trail runs through part of the preserve and is a designated Millenium Trail. Millennium Trails honor the past and celebrate the future through natural settings.

If you would like to expand your adventure, Congaree National Park – the first national park in South Carolina – is close to the preserve and is a great place to paddle, tube, or fish.
