It is a private area in which the visitorS car pay US$ 6 per day to get in. Please note is only accessible by car or bicycle. I do not know the price when cycling. It is worth because of the vegetation common to the place that might be different from where one lives.

If you have access, Sea Pines is a great place to ride bikes, shop and dine. It is on the southern end of the island and is gated.

We went to Sea Pines Forest Preserve yesterday and really enjoyed how beautiful the place is. We were able to see an alligator!! That was very exciting for all of us. It's well maintained and such a great way for family to enjoy wildlife together.

Wonderful hike. Bring bug repellant. The fish island was disappointing, but the bogs and boardwalks more than made up for it.

Rode our bikes all over the preserve fishing and exploring. The swamp trails are really worth seeing - teeming with wildlife and scenery. Beautiful lakes and ponds.

It took a while to figure out where to go but once we found the trails, it was great. Very quiet - we didn't run into anyone else. Bring insect repellent. Saw an alligator, turtles and a heron. Really pretty. Good for kids - no ledges and all smooth ground.

While staying at Sea Pines it is easy to visit this 600 acre forest either on foot or horseback. Nice and shady on those hot low country days.

A great walk to experience the coastal environment. We are from the midwest and know nothing of this coastal environment. This easy walk was enjoyable and educational. We biked from our rental to the parking area where we met some of our family. After a picnic lunch we all took a walk and enjoyed the surroundings.

Sea Pines takes up a large portion of Hilton Head Island, so if you're the kind of person who wants to see everything, it is worth a trip to see the lighthouse and have a drink at the Salty Dog. If you don't want to spend the $6 just to get through the gate you can find many other spots... More
