I hiked the entire Coquina Trail section of Poinsett. Was surprised to see how mountainous it felt when not even close the to mountain ranges. Nice hike through hills and a swamp area. Very diverse and a very nice hike

I hiked the scout loop with my family. It was a nice loop and just long enough for my 5 yr old daughter.

did the 1.5m yellow trail the incline was un expected but the decline was welcomed, had our toddler along so thats all we were comfortable with doing that day, taking the family and relatives when they come down on vacation in june up there to camp and hopefully to ALL the trails, we're all pretty educated hiking enthusiasts.

I hiked the Wateree Passage portion of the Palmetto Trail after it was being recommended by the Park Ranger there. It starts in Poinsett State park and treks 7 miles until the trail ends at the Wateree River. The trail does continue, but the rainy season has flooded the trail. The trail is well worn and easy to follow. Mostly flat except a few places where there is some uphill/downhill. There are 10 bridges along this route where you can fish or bird watch. The land is mostly swampy so use bug repellent, lots of it! Also, even though it's still spring here, the temperatures reached the high 80 degrees F, so water and sun block are a must. Lots of wild life, including salamanders, frogs, and of course, alligators. If your looking to get out on the weekend for a quick hike this is worth checking out. I stayed at the campground in Poinsett State park, so if you want to know about the ground, let me know.
