Hiking on the Refuge...

Waccamaw NWR has numerous opportunities for you to get out and enjoy nature. Several areas of the Refuge provide visitors with opportunities for good wildlife observation, photography, & hiking experiences.

If you are interested in hiking on the Refuge, we would suggest you visit our Cox Ferry Lake Recreation Area in Conway which is roughly 15 miles from our Visitor Center. It has 3 trails of varying lengths including our new boardwalk which allows hikers to meander through a flooded cypress swamp. You can expect to see a variety of forest wildlife, including an array of plants and animals associated with bottomland hardwood habitats.

Hiking is also permitted along the Great Pee Dee River at the Hwy. 701 bridge just north of Yauhannah Lake. Bring your binoculars or camera and let nature entertain you.
