Muddy in some parts but avoidable with poles. Hope to do the full thing soon

Mountain bikingMuddy

Great quick trail over all. Plan around weather, ideally with a few days in between the last rain. As with most of the area there is standing in water for days after rain. Descent elevation for a low country trail near the water. Some heavily rooted areas but overall a great weekly trail not too far away.

Muddy, boggy and wet, but passable with good boots. Turned around about 1/2 way due to not wanting to Trek through calf high water from last night’s rain, though it would have been passable. Well marked and easy hike. Just be prepared to get muddy.

Beautiful winter hike. The first mile out was boggy and threw off your hiking rhythm as you had to pick your way through. Once you were out along the marsh, the views were excellent.

Laid back easy walk. Good Canopy cover along a lot of it. Not as wet as last time but still muddy in parts.

Short, flat, pretty hike. Not any more buggy or boggy than you would expect from a glance at the trail map - come on, people. Go at sunrise and have the trail and views to yourself. Well worth the morning.

It needs work in some areas as they are very muddy with hidden tree roots in the mud. Had a couple of spills in the mud because of the hidden roots. Some areas are very beautiful.

Bird watchingGreat!

Really nice trail for viewing the marsh looking toward Cape Romain. Didn't see many birds, probably because high tide and mid morning. we walked in tennis shoes without any problems. Some muddy spots but easily navigated.
