Good in spring
It was a great walk...lots of wildlife.
lots and lots of aligators. great stroll through the woods but a bit populated with people. not a bad choice
Amazing day in the preserve. Large variety of tall trees, classic swamps, and small lakes. $6 to enter if you aren't a guest at the resort. Morning evening are best to view animals. Saw turtles, gators, and a crazy assortment of birds.
Great swamp forest trail. There are lots of smaller loop options for people looking for a quicker hike. Because it is a swamp forest, there are essentially no elevation changes. Very quiet and relaxing. We went in December, so the alligators and snakes were dormant (which we were happy about).
Nice break from all the pavement. Saw several alligators, great variety of birds. Rice dike and boardwalk were fun.
For a Northerner this Sea Pines Forest Preserve is almost exotic. Spanish Moss, palmettos and it's teeming with wildlife along the boardwalks over swampy marshes, alligators! turtles! snakes! so many birds like egrets and cormorants. Look closely on the trees going through the woods - we saw some funny faces crafted out of natural materials. There is an ancient Native American shell ring (not much left but I always seek out every historic spot). Horses, a wildflower field near the lake too.
