Columbia River Walk

The Columbia River Walk is sponsored by the UpState PathFinders Club, South Carolina's only American Volkssport Association (AVA) club. Our volksmarches (people's walk) are leisurely walks through scenic, historic, or interesting areas over a pre-determined route.

The Columbia River Walk is primarily on eight foot concrete walkways or boardwalk paths along the pristine Congaree River. There are plenty of benches along the way in the event you just want to catch your breath and drink in the magnificent scenery. There are also plenty of public restrooms, drinking fountains and parking. The architecture and infrastructure surrounding the pathways and the river are awe inspiring. You can walk through history in a still functioning, 122 year old lock that was constructed in 1891 that still controls the flow of the river. This piece of working history will not be missed as the walk goes right through it. You can view natural wonders, and man made excellence all the while walking through South Carolina's wildlife habitats. After your walk, there are many great restaurants along Gervais Street to stop in for a bite to eat. Most of these are in view of the State Capitol. If you are going to walk any walk in this city, this is the one to pick if you are looking to escape into beautiful vistas and working history. This walk is suitable for wheelchairs and strollers.   Trail rating 1A/5K/10K.
