Just outside of downtown Aiken, South Carolina lies one of the largest urban forests in the United States, a 2100-acre tract of land maintained by the Hitchcock Foundation for public use. The many hiking and horseback trails here can provide for hours of fun exploring the interesting terrain. The Cathedral Aisle Trail, which was originally a part of the South Carolina Canal and Railroad Company, became America's first rail-trail in 1939.
