An oceanfront campground on a palmetto-lined beach famed for its shelling is just one highlight of Edisto Beach State Park. Only an hour from Charleston, the park also offers another campground deep in the maritime forest full of live oaks and some of the states tallest palmetto trees, as well as a row of comfortable cabins nestled in the woods but with a front-row view of miles of pristine marshland. Edisto Beach State Park also offers the states longest system of handicapped-friendly hiking and biking trails, including one leading to a mysterious, 4,000-year-old shell midden alongside a secluded bend on a tidal creek. The park also has an environmental education center, a green building full of exhibits that highlight the natural history of Edisto Island and the surrounding ACE Basin, one of the nations largest preserved estuaries.

disappointed to find this and Grove Plantation are closed until further notice (effective Aug 2016) :-( really enjoy this trail.

I went to try to get to this trail using the address heee and just got a dead end on some private property just saying

Nice walk on a cool day.

It was pretty and tranquil but there was nothing posted that the end of the trail was closed and, even in late November, the mosquitoes were killer! (It was unseasonably warm)

The trail would have been fine but the Mosquitos were unbelievable! We were there the day after Thanksgiving. Not sure I'll be able to get my kids back out there.

This Is a tranquil tropical trail with a cool breeze calmly blowing. It is one of the most beautiful trails that I've visited here in the south. We brought mountain bikes and that was a very relaxed ride but the trail was so beautiful that we also walked this trail I suggest the walk. The trail is actually located in Edisto State park and not in the neighborhood that the GPS brings you into if you try to GPS. Just go to Edisto Beach State Park and you will find this hidden treasure. Enjoy ! and thank you AllTrails !

Nice easy trail. Benches to enjoy the views or rest if you need to. Great hike in the winter

Pretty easy. Path is flat and not very challenging. Good for a first time mtn bikers. A few well laid out curves; taken at high speeds will up the adrenalin rush. Watch for hermit crabs crossing...

Nice hike! Starts at the Edisto Beach State Park though. Costs $5 per adult.

Nice area and trail. But $5 per adult for admission to the state park.
