Love love love this place!

Park closes at 5pm on Sunday so we had about 10 minutes. No time to do the trail but it seemed cool

Nice- shady, and sandy, trail with old live oaks.

Stunning! Make sure to take the boat ride!

I didn’t believe places like such existed! I only thought they were in movies! One of the most beautiful place I’ve been! Walk out into that marsh! Walk that boardwalk! Take your kids there! Just stand, be quiet and enjoy it! Go see Atlaya Castle too! If you look it up it says Pawlys Island but it’s in HBSP! There is also kayaking offered at the RS! Look me up to pics of Atlaya!!!

Definitly. NOT a walking TRAIL. Bring a canoe or power boar and just go skiing.

Cool place!

The trail for the preserve is not located on Baggette Road. It is on Holladay Road, which runs between Baggette and Liberty Church Road.The trail is easily seen from the parking area, since it is an old forest road/firebreak. The trail, however, is very rough and covered in high grass, so you never knew if you were going to turn your ankle. When following the trail from the parking area, you will come to a sharp divide, with no clear markings. The trail straight ahead goes to some private fields and a round metal hunter's hut. The trail to the left goes on around the edge of the bay. However, you are not able to see much of the bay (it looks better from the skyview photos than from the ground). Not a very interesting hike, though I am glad thay are preserving the area. There are very few of the Carolina Bays this size left intact. But if you want to see a bay from the ground, go to nearby Wood's Bay.

Beautiful gardens with great art schuptures. I've done this several times while camping nearby with my twin brother. The main downside is I couldn't share it with my four Shih Tzu companions.

Nice easy scenic trail that I did with my twin brother and four Shih Tzu companions while camping in the area several years ago.

As of 07/22/18, it was engulfed by the surrounding swamp due to a few solid days of heavy rain. Still an interesting hike.

I mean, it doesn’t get much better than THIS!!! This place is amazing, complete with a marsh that offers frequent alligator sightings, we saw a baby one right off the overlook! And an amazing stretch of gorgeous beach with extremely convenient beach access and parking! We’ve saved so much money by just hiking, sight seeing, and swimming here at this beautiful park!

Enjoyed it very much. Very easy. Lots to see and historical interest (rice paddies back in the day).

Not maintained, uncut grass, briars and too many mosquitos. No visible trail markers. Many branches of trails and no way clear way to navigate. Abandoned home and camper.

Bug spray didn’t deter the mosquitos from biting!

Hiking in the winter may be better.

Nice walking paths with cool wooden bridges everywhere. Lots of scenic overlooks. The hiking part of the trail was overgrown and without too much to see.

Great trail. Soft with some sections of dead pine needles and leaves, some dirt and some sand. Fairly level, easy trail. Look up on trees for white square to indicate trail. Mostly in shade.

great walk on the nature trail, saw a white fox, alligator, and plenty of heron.

Some nice wildlife however there is no way to do the entire trail without having a kayak or canoe… Once you get to a certain point there is no path and water for a great distance it is definitely not a loop trail unless you come with the kayak strapped to your back.

Absolutely loved it here! Took my two kids after they did the egg hunt that was here for Easter. We saw a 15+ foot gator we saw a blue heron eating fish and the sites were very beautiful! We are definitely going back!

Hermit thrush, black & white warbler, downy woodpecker, chickadees, robins, and heard parulas ..... and gators!

Nice easy stroll. The park has more to see than just the trail. Enjoyed our tour through the Atalanta Castle during our stop.

This is just a walk down a street. And there is no place to park either.

Tucked deep in the Francis Marion National Forest, this primitive trail provides a temporary escape from civilized life. If you're looking for a way to hit the "reset button" this is your trail!

I do not recommend this trail at all. The trail had been tilled up with discs and was uneven, making it impossible to walk on for any distance.

Bennett's Bay offers an approximately 2.0 mile trail that takes visitors into the outer extremities of an intact Carolina Bay. Quiet, serene, and a diverse palette of plant species. This trail does not see routine maintenance, with one particular spur trail fully blocked by fallen trees. Surrounding areas are wet, so the summer months could be particularly bad for mosquitoes and horseflies. Nice, leisurely walk if you happen to be in the area.

Went in January. Good hike, and good views of the levees/water. Didn’t see too much interesting wildlife, but good surroundings. Definitely more of an Easy hike than Moderate, but some parts of the trail can get overgrown.

My impression of Cypress Gardens is recorded here at goGardenNow blog:

Meh. Not that fun. Flat, didn’t see any wildlife. Wouldn’t recommend going in late December.

This is my first trail I walked. It was nice and quiet. I saw a couple of birds and a few wild boar. It had not rained enough to prevent me from walking the loop. There are a couple of down trees laying across the trail, but nothing to hinder my pace. There are a lot of roots above ground and I would not recommend a bike or baby strollers. Some areas are a little over grown and will need trimmed back in spring (perfect place for snakes to hide). Would definitely recommend it for beginners. I really enjoyed it.
