Pay the price for the permit to explore this area on your bike. Great trails to take you all through the area. Expect to see some alligators and lots of other unexpected sightings. more »
If you want a chance to get out and walk, and see what Hilton Head Island looked like before all the development of homes and commercial real estate, visit this location. We walked around a couple of hours and loved our experience. We saw beautiful trees, heard many different birds, and saw bodies of water. The path was easy to navigate and signs were displayed often enough we didn't get lost. Our alligator hunt was in vain, but we still felt like it was time well spent. Hilton Head is a beautiful island and it has many different trees, plants, and ither forms of wild life to enjoy while strolling in there home.
Lovely spot for an island hiking adventure. We adored the mostly shaded walking trails throughout the preserve. Enjoy a variation of habitats from marshes and bogs to open fields with wildflowers. Such an awesome place to identify plants and spot different animals. Avid birders will love this spot! Highly recommend, worth going alone or with a group and easily navigable. Bring water!
