We went in the winter and it was quite enjoyable. Challenging parts all around this State Park. I'm sure when the trees and flowers are in bloom it's spectacular.

Hiked multiple portions of the trail system in this beautiful state park. Trails in good to excellent condition. Scenic, challenging in places, fun, and quiet. Dog friendly as well. Nice historic structures and interesting biotic diversity. Trails well marked with color blazes. Enjoy.

I hiked the entire Coquina Trail section of Poinsett. Was surprised to see how mountainous it felt when not even close the to mountain ranges. Nice hike through hills and a swamp area. Very diverse and a very nice hike

I hiked the scout loop with my family. It was a nice loop and just long enough for my 5 yr old daughter.
