SC Revolutionary Rivers®: Paddle through history

Find General Francis Marion's secret hideout


The SC Revolutionary Rivers Trail follows the scenic Lynches River from Lynches River County Park to the cypress and tupelo-laden stomping grounds of Revolutionary War hero General Francis Marion. The fact that Marion and his band of militia could simply disappear into the cypress swamplands earned him the name of the Swamp Fox.

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. For a list of outfitters who can provide guided tours, click the map link below.
