HikingGreat!

Loved the scenic trail. Saw squirrels, worms, tree life. It was an awesome trek. Went nobo to a few bridges at the end was really nice a bench with wish trees all around. It was beautiful. flooding brought me to rerought my GPS. Definately better that trekking near a sewer plant.

Writing this review a week late: the trail down to the Intracoastal Waterway was really beautiful! Lots of marsh and salt creek views. The boardwalks are very well kept and clean as are the grounds. We started with the boardwalks and made our way to the inland pine forest where the trails were great but the mosquitoes were unbearable! Had to turn back, should have used bug spray!! Our bad! Will definitely go back in cooler temps and better prepared for bugs.

Great trail, great vibe amongst co-hikers, make sure you bring insect repellent! We were there in early October and all but got carried away by the mosquitoes!

Went on my bike. The trails weren’t marked very well and the mosquitos were definitely thirsty.

Ein sehr schöner, schattiger Weg. Zum Wasser hin tolle Stege mit schönen Und weiten Ausblicken. Die Beschilderung ist am Wendepunkt etwas verwirrend, aber irgendwie führen alle Wege zurück.

Nice trail but confusing! There’s two trails—a red one and a blue one that overlap. I encourage you to park at the end of the road and pick up a map. The pier and boardwalk are beautiful and there’s lots of natural wildlife in the salt marsh!

Perfect trail for a relaxing walk to the waterway. Red trail out and blue trail back. Lots of people walking dogs and the waterway and the marshes make this a great time.

A rare gem for this area. Natural park with tree-lined trails, great views of the Inland Waterway, and well-placed information panels on the wildlife and plants in the area. Remember, the temperature drops 5 degrees between the entrance and the trails along the water.

One of the best areas around the Grand Strand to Onewheel. Lots of intertwining trails and very technical on a Onewheel.
