Easy trail with changes in elevation. Goes through a nicely diverse hardwood forest that makes a great nature trail for tree identification. I added some IDs on iNaturalist. The fee is minimal ($2 per car).

Myrtle Beach State Parks trails are a beautiful easy walk. Informative signs along the way, including benches to rest upon.

I would highly recommend this trail, it was very kept up with and the view was amazing!

A flat, easy trail with historic background within the bounds of Congaree National Park leading to scenic views of the Congaree river. Trail was somewhat overgrown/not clearly maintained but was very much walkable all the same. Great opportunities for birding (heard/saw several species) and may see a mother boar and piglets as I did if you walk softly. Some small mud puddles but nothing that seriously obstructs the path. The real payoff is the grassy clearing at the trail's end overlooking the river, perfect for contemplation, with a little sandy beach where animal tracks may be seen. Definitely recommend for the views and ease of walking.

Basically, a city trail. Although nice, it’s not for someone looking to be in the woods.

This trail has a few spots where it takes some effort to climb upwards. Some spots were slippery with leaves. Some of those leaves covered rocks. Be careful with your footing. Historical more than entertaining.

short and sweet kind of trail. has a nice little stream running around parts of the trail. baby fish are a common sight in the summertime only small complaint is the ranger that was on duty was kind of a bit picker but its their job

Nice easy trail. You have to go off trail to see the lake up close.

After reading other's reviews about flooding, I assume because of drier conditions this autumn I didn't see any flooding. Downed trees were cut up by the time i went where others said they were on the trail 2 months ago. I'll definitely visit again during winter and spring. Am told the springtime is really thriving with birds, butterflies, amd snakes. Didn't see garbage like others pointed out. It WAS pretty busy but it's convenient to a lot of people so that's to be expected

Great spot!

absalutely beaut ultimate my wife and I absalutely love this hike. We're 50 and didn't find it hard at all. saw alot of signs of wild hogs. we always carry protection. awesome hike.

This is a lovely trail along the Marsh. Brookgreen Gardens is absolutely worth the visit--december is the ideal time to visit so that you can enjoy the holiday lights in the gardens.

This was a great run and new favorite spot for me! Challenging at times, but if you start at the bottom of Brissey(or in a parking lot a mile away like I did) the downhill is awesome. You'll have earned it!

Nice walk along a service road for the sewer system. About 1 mile into the walk there is a gate that was closed and padlocked. Overall very quite and peaceful.

Very pretty little trail and super easy hike. Pay attention when transitioning from Issaqueena/Rocky/Collarbone. Beware of some really rude bikers. I’ve gotten run down each time I’ve hiked this and it’s always on the lake front section where the path is really narrow. Keep this in mind with dogs and small kids.

What an incredible trail! I hiked up Table Rock, across the Ridge Trail up to the summit of Pinnacle Mountain, then back to the trailhead. The views are amazing! Table Rock Trail is much more trafficked than the Ridge and Pinnacle Trails, and coming down from the summit of Table Rock was a little more crowded, even in the off-season. If you really want to feel out in the middle of nowhere, The Ridge and Pinnacle Trails are for you. There is no view from the top of Pinnacle, but nonetheless worth it, and the view from the Bald Knob Overlook further down the mountain is simply stunning! Highly recommend!

My husband and I had not been able to hike in a couple weeks, and this was the perfect trail for a good cardio workout without killing ourselves. The trail is well maintained and easy to follow. There are no grand vistas, but the terrain is varied and has many interesting water features and rock formations. We are in our late 50’s, and it took us about 2-1/2 hours to hike the 5.7 miles from the trailhead to the river - and back. We will definitely hike this trail again..

This is our favorite state park. Great scenery and trails. Moderate difficulty. Take water.

Great trail for running! My dog & I stayed at the RV park and ran right from our site & back. Wish I had read the reviews before we went though bc I would have skipped bringing her! TICKS!!! I pulled about 30 off of her when we got back (luckily none were attached yet just working their way toward her). Regardless, beautiful trail, will do again, just minus the dog next time!

Pretty easy for a moderate hike. Loved the waterfalls though. I would recommend for anyone
