A very pleasant surprise. My husband and I along with 3 dogs stopped here en route to Folly Beach. We had a nice picnic and then hiked this trail along with the Knot trails. Very lovely with enough to qualify as a reasonable work out. Recommend the detour!

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
