Flat trail, very easy to navigate. Saw some snakes and turtles, strong bird population. One crossing section of trail and road is not busy, but the trail inlet across is 50 ft feet down the road, so use caution. Very quiet trail and great to bring a dog for.
Not many hill to the lower section of it. Very isolated and not much traffic when I was there back in April. Theres quite a few small pounds dotted along side the trail as you head north. The parking lot is on the north side of the road, left hand side headed north, right hand side headed south. You must be heading south in order to access the gravel parking lot, free parking.
We took the family out for a short 2 hour hike. The trail was hard to find at first but was well maintained. There was standing water in places and we had to detour over logs for a few of the deeper spots. Not a bad trail to hike with young children. Our 9 and 5 year old handled the trail well and had a blast exploring. We will be returning for a longer day hike and possibly an overnight stay.
Very nice walk in spring, fall and winter. Easy loop to stroll along. Pet friendly. Not crowded. Parts of the trail can be flooded out if it's rained allot recently. All wooded= shady. Interpretive signs along trail. As with any trail in lowcountry.... Bring bug spray.
Great Trail. However, the map listed for this trail is incorrect. It is only about half of the trail. Next time I do this trail I will attempt to add the rest of the trail. I'm not sure how to upload a recorded trail track to an existing map. Full trail map is in the link below. Also this trail is currently closed along with a few other sections of the Palmetto Trail due to all the rain SC got. See palmettoconservation.org and there FB page for current trail closures..
