Nice open trail. Trail (road) winds thru an old rice field. Road was in good condition with some mud but easy to get around. Quiet space, with some views of the N Santee River. If you go, take the fourth right to take you back to beginning. Otherwise, you will have to navigate about 500 yards of highway 17N with hardly any shoulder. Good exercise. Would do it again.

Hiked on 3/26/2018. Sunny mid 60’s and breezy. No bugs. Beautiful hike on levees of former rice plantation turned into wildlife refuge. Easy to navigate. Saw bald eagles, cranes, vultures, multiple smaller birds and 3 alligators. Once I got away from the highway, the only sounds I heard were birds and reeds rustling in the wind. Did not see anyone except one trail maintenance worker the whole time I was there.

Grass very overgrown, watch out for ticks! Lots of signs of gator crossings but nothing recent, loads of deer, raccoon and other animal sign and a decent amount of birds! Saw two small gators and a gar in the channels.
