Aiken State Park is as rich in its history as it is natural beauty. The Jungle Nature Trail is a 3-mile boardwalk and dirt turf loop through wetlands, mixed pine and hardwood forest.

Loading Trails

This is a level, easy-to-follow, 3-mile boardwalk and dirt turf loop through tropical-looking wetlands, and mixed pine and hardwood forest. You will walk through dense green rhododendron, and fern that provide habitat for iridescent dragonflies, and a variety of birds, snakes and other wildlife. Continuing on the main trail, avoid any unmarked spur trails, and you will return to the parking area. During the warm season insect repellant is recommended. Pets are permitted on leashes. Restrooms are available near the picnic area.

Camping: Call 1-866-345-PARK (7275) or go online at www.SouthCarolinaParks.com to make your reservations today!


From Aiken: Drive southeast on US 78 to the town of Windsor and turn left onto Aiken County S-53. The entrance to Aiken State Natural Area is approximately 5.0 miles. Enter the park, and turn left. The trailhead is to the right of the playground.
