Beautiful salt marsh and forest trails. AllTrails covers less than half the trails. Enjoyed a ten mile jaunt across the island and up to a white Point, down the other side.

Hiking

Flat, nice marsh views, very low country. Went out to Shell Point and out to Bull Point, total 7.1 miles — walked it. Nice wide paths, sand, gravel, packed dirt. Would be very hot and buggy in the summer. Will be back to bike more of the trails.

Hiking

0A really well manicured wild life refuge if there is such a thing.Dense vegetation along the trails makes it monotonous perhaps because the original forests were removed in the 1830s to create a cotton plantation, which is good for meditation. Not many stunning sites and interesting vegetation compared to various trails in Skidaway but the paths are wide and flat suitable for all ages, bikes, and possibly even wheel chair.

HikingGreat!

Went to Shell Point, was worth it. Animal watching was best near the ponds, trails were well maintained and not crowded. Not really stunning views, but still a great hike.

Good for exercise or a bike ride but didn’t see too much that was interesting. Mostly just trees.

Running

Interesting bike route - gravel, grass, straws, bumps all thrown in for a sort of off-road adventure. Marshland, creek and ponds abound. Also featured, Ibis, egrets, alligators and even a turtle.

HikingGreat!

Beautiful and easy. Make sure you go when it’s high tide, if not your views will be muddy. Great for kids because it has a butterfly garden and other little stops along the trail. Great for anyone who has a hobby of photography.

WalkingGreat!

This was our first visit to Pinckney Island and we were not disappointed! The trail was very scenic with abundant wildlife! I look forward to exploring more on our hopefully soon return. We walked in about 4 miles. I would love to explore the island next time on a bicycle.

HikingGreat!

DEFINITELY make the extra trip past Ibis Pond to White Point. It is a beautiful oyster/sand beach with beautiful views of Port Royal Sound and Skull Creek, with a handful of whelk shells as well. Honestly made the entire trip for me. Makes it a longer hike but definitely worth it.

Great trails with little to no other traffic. The ponds are great nesting sites for several bird species. We saw gators courting and breeding as well as baby gators and signs of other wildlife.
