The area is well-maintained! When we found a dangerous bridge, we called the number listed on the map. When we reached the parking lot, the guys were already there to fix it!! We were amazed! They were very friendly and happy to have our input. We will hike it again before we leave!

We have stayed here twice now and love the Island. Cycle hire is very reasonable and the best way to get around the island, its wonderful riding to the beach and then riding along the shore line. No problem even if the beach is busy!

After a lovely bike ride down the beach and through the Shipyard area of HH, we reached the gate to Sea Pines to find that this is essentially a private elitist enclave that we could have the privilege of perusing should we cough up a fee. Seriously?! The very existence of this place is the embodiment of snobism, and flies... More

Amidst the upscale facilities in Hilton Head is this small piece of "wild". It's a good place for bird watching and, in the right weather, alligator watching. There is also fishing. It's easy to access either by car or bike. There are good hiking and biking trails. And it's free.

There are lots of trails with varying habitats - marshland, forest, lakes, meadows. A wonderful place for walking or riding bikes. We usually picnic and spend the day.

A pass for the day costs $6 to get into the area. Money well spent. Beautiful around these parts. So much to see. The plantation is here, forest preserve, and lots of wildlife. Must see!!

Lovely walk among the trees. They were out of maps, so I HIGHLY recommend you take a photo of the map to help yourself out. It is easy to get lost in there. Much larger than you think. We were in there an hour and a half and did not see it all. Kids liked the shell circle. Some paths... More

What an excellent park in the middle of the island -- great trails, feels like you are out in the forest somewhere remote. Love the lakes too, what a peaceful setting!
