Weston Lake Loop Trail is a moderate loop in Congaree National Park. Dogs (on leash) are permitted on this trail. This hike is okay for kids and should keep their attention with ample wildlife along the way. This trail has yellow blazes. The park says "following a cypress-tupelo slough, this loop traverses an old-growth forest. As you walk along the northern bank of Cedar Creek, wildlife, such as river otters, can be spotted playing in the creek's dark waters." There is camping available in Congaree National Park.
