Exploring miles of boardwalk and a dense canopy of old growth hardwood trees is what many visitors experience at Congaree National Park. During winter months, waters from the Conagree and Wateree Rivers sweep through the floodplain, opening up a new, surreal world. Congaree wilderness is a place to escape, reflect, and enjoy. Kayak through the forest and experience this special place through the eyes of local veterans Eric Guzman and Edye Joyner who find a reprieve in the healing and dynamic waters.
