Encompassing nearly 260,000-acres, Francis Marion National Forest is home to dense pine stands, towering bald cypress trees, swamps, and marshes. The Francis Marion Ranger District offers the perfect opportunity to get out and explore. Hike the Sewee Shell Ring Boardwalk, a 1-mile, self-guided interpretive trail that overlooks a prehistoric shell

ring, the South Tibwin Hiking Trail, or the Awendaw Passage- Palmetto Trail. The Awendaw Creek Canoe Trail meanders underneath US-17 and around barrier islands along the Intracoastal Waterway. A birdwatchers paradise, 293 species can be found here. Orient yourself and learn more from environmental education and interpretive programs at the Sewee Visitor and Environmental Education Center. With so much to do, make it an overnight with tent and RV camping. Mid-May is host to the Bulls Bay Nature Festival featuring special events, kayaking, guided tours, food and craft vendors, music and more.
