Lots of variety. One of the better trails in the area. Several connecting trails for different inner and outer loop options.

In addition to the periphery trail shown on the All Trails map, there are several interior trails at the park. They’re all level, easy hikes.

I found the Swamp Sanctuary trail particularly scenic with its birds, butterflies, and alligators. Purple irises abound. Sound fills the air. And if you come at the right time, there is little to no problem with bugs. I certainly didn’t have to deal with mosquitos and the like.

The park is definitely worth the small $2/person entry fee. I’ll definitely visit again when I go back to Charleston.

I love walking here so much diversity and its the nicest flat hike in the state. Great way to get someone started hiking to bring them here.

Had a wonderful time. Trail is easy to follow, was able to see a lot of wild life and my kids enjoyed it. Will be coming back.

Excellent loop through a wide variety of habitats, about 2/3 shady forest and 1/3 sunny marshland. Also some interesting rice plantation history here. Trails are well-maintained and easy to follow, though this particular route is not well marked. Make sure you pick up a trail map at the gift shop and know how to read it. Good wildlife viewing; the fish were literally jumping out of the marsh pond on my visit. Winter is best for coming here due to the bugs and sun. Overall, best hike in Charleston County.

I love this area. It’s generally always open, inexpensive, and well maintained. There are both shaded and sunny areas and a few different trails to choose. We typically stay away from the forestland trails when it’s in the low fifties or has rained, opted for the sunnier trails.
