First Day Hike - Where War Meets Nature
At Rivers Bridge State Historic Site
Happy New Year! Let's start your New Year's resolution out on the right foot and hit a State Park trail. Join a ranger at Rivers Bridge State Historic Site and walk in the footsteps of Civil War soldiers. Take an easy 2-mile hike from the Memorial Grounds to the Battlefield. See the natural beauty of the Salkahatchie Swamp and hear how the soldiers endured bad weather during battle that took place in February 1865. We'll hope for beautiful weather, but if it's a little nasty, come out anyway. At least nobody's shooting cannons at you!
What to Bring
Water, a snack, comfortable walking shoes, and dress for the weather.
