Four bikers, one runner. All enjoyed there time here. Don't stop with the Indian Mound - continue through the woods and across the boardwalks for some beautiful forest and lovely marsh vistas. Education center is clean and informative. Have fun

We walked the trail to the shell mound on the first day of January-(no problems with bugs).To get to the trail, you need to go into the state park entrance across the street from the Edistonian. The trail is flat and wide, and is somewhere around 3 to 3.4 miles round-trip. The shell mound is interesting, although was not as... More

There is a bike path along the highway all the way to the trail to the Indian Shell Mound. From there the ride is thru the woods on hard packed trails and across several wooden bridges. It opens up along the way to overlook the large creek that flows thru the area. Great bike ride.

Rent a bike and enjoy the beautiful live oaks and palms trees with an easy bike to the oyster mound, which overlooks a marsh and creek. Beautiful!

This is a great trail to walk down to the mounds. Beautiful creeks, very educational. You must visit the Edisto Educational Center. You can fish off the docks as well as put your boat in at Live Oak Landing.

You can walk or bike but this easy trail is worth the walk. At the end is an amazing mound that Indians left thousands of years ago. Its eroding but still very interesting. The view is a fab look at the coastal marshlands. Very nice.

The trail was comfortable with wide walk areas and easy walking. Before you go be sure to put on insect repellent for mosquitoes and ticks. Good place to hike and bike.

Had heard alot about this area and would have liked to have been able to explore more there but it is generally a small overlook deck. The trail area is easy to follow.

My husband and I hiked the Spanish Mound trail during our recent visit to Edisto Island State Park. The trail is 1.7 miles each way and is mostly flat and smooth. There isn't much to look at on the way, except the huge spiders hanging in the trees over the path and the occasional squirrel running about. There are no... More
