A sweeping Grand Strand beach, pristine and wide open. Sea-breeze camping and fishing from a jetty or in the surf. And some of the finest bird-watching on the East Coast. Thats not all Huntington Beach State Park has to offer. Theres also Atalaya, the picturesque, Moorish-style winter home of Anna Hyatt and Archer Huntington, sculptress and philanthropist, respectively, who left the park and adjacent Brookgreen Gardens as their legacy. Nature lovers also will enjoy the parks Environmental Education Center and wide variety of programming, including the chance to see loggerhead turtles and other endangered plant and animal species up close. The parks freshwater lake is a sure-fire place to see alligators and sometimes even a mink or two. Art lovers, meanwhile, flock by the thousands to the prestigious, juried Atalaya Arts and Crafts Festival held in and around the castle each September.

Easy walk. I went in mid-November & didn’t see any alligators.

wonderful trail and even better when you go off-grid. great for kids

Not lot to ride with the bikes all trails have a sign for foot traffic only but we were able to connect the waccamma bike trail and that was fantastic

Nice trail through maritime forest, a little sandy though towards the end, but overall a great trail with nice views of pond

The trail was easy to hike and the views from the trail were good. It's good for beginning hikers even on hot days as much of it is shaded.

Plenty to do. Check out the alligators at the causeway. Check out the birds in the marsh. Check out the beach. Well worth the admission to the park!
