Hikers root around in a tree

Congaree National Park’s fallen cherry bark tree has created a destination for hikers


While in Congaree National Park, Phillip Jones, park volunteer Keith Coffer, and Pastor Terry Cagle of Greenlawn Babtist church came upon a cherry bark oak brought down by recent storms. People can actually crawl into the tree. Its located on the main trail just past Weston Lake. The trail goes right through the roots.
