The SC Revolutionary Rivers Trail is a National Water Trail following the Lynches Scenic River from Lynches River County Park to the cypress and tupelo laden stomping grounds of Revolutionary War hero General Francis Marion.
The fact Marion and his band of militia could simply disappear into the cypress swamplands earned him the name of the Swamp Fox.
Coordinated through Florence CVB, the 66-mile trail offers paddlers an unique experience of floating through swampland that was once traversed by Patriots engaged in guerrilla warfare against the Loyalists. The trail also features a series of short excursions and overnight rustic camping opportunities provided by local outfitters. Self-guided driving tours to remote Francis Marion Trail sites also are available.
