Started a section hike of the Palmetto Trail here. Trail is very flat and excellently maintained. They were doing a cross country race when we were there and they had even marked small obstructions in the trail with paint. If you like looking at salt water marshes this is the trail for you.

I still remember this trail very well. There were times that I thought we were walking too close to the snake habitat.

I did this summer before last. It was a nice trip. There were wolves howling at night but we were not able to see any.

A nice drive

It was great! A little buggy but expected for July after a rain. Loved the canopy of trees,wasn't too hot. Will do it again in the fall! So peaceful and lots to look at.

Pretty, but disappointing - wildlife not in evidence. Terrible GPS directions from within app, but looked at recent hiker map to find trail head.

Great, short hike. Saw a mom and baby gator swimming around in the canal. Parts of the trail were a little overgrown but personally it added to adventure.

is this trail stroller accessible?

Beautiful forest area that opens up to the marsh, easy loops and wide paths to follow. Saw some great wildlife. Loved it.

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.

Eerily beautiful. Simple. Spotted a gator about 7 feet away! Wouldn't bring an animal who doesn't listen to commands. Also, wear rain boots (very soggy in some places) and definitely bring bug spray!

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.

Enjoyable trail. Flat of course. I enjoyed the woods and a creek here and there. One section, maybe around mile 5 was just root after root. Overall a decent trail. I live close by so will be going again

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.

Nice basic trail. Easy location from Charleston.

Great hike
