About Congaree River

The 50-mile Congaree River Blue Trail connects the City of Columbia, the Three Rivers Greenway, and rural communities to Congaree National Park, the largest wilderness in South Carolina. As families experience the area’s rich natural resources and wildlife through canoeing, kayaking, fishing, and riverside hiking, support has increased from conservation easements along the river and a park boundary expansion to protect the area’s extensive natural, cultural, and recreational resources.
