South Carolina Trails

South Carolina, located in the southeastern U.S., is dominated by hundreds of sea islands off the coast, the Atlantic Coastal Plain that stretches island, hilly forested terrain in the center of the state, and the Blue Ridge Mountains that stretch across northwestern South Carolina.

South Carolina is home to Congaree National Park, where hikers and backpackers can disappear among the bald cypress and tupelo trees of this jungly park.

The editors at Backpacker have created an extensive collection of popular trails and trips for hiking and backpacking South Carolina.
