We had a lovely time, for the second year in a row, walking through this preserve. The paths are suitable for families, pets, bikes and there is even a car trail.

Lovely way to kill a couple hours especially if you enjoy bird watching. Loads of species and a private gated community of Sea Pines makes the whole thing really nice

We loved the hike. We saw snakes and alligators all along the trail, and our kids were thrilled! One of our kids is in a wheelchair, and she traveled well most of the trail but it is bumpy in some areas. It was difficult in some areas to push her chair as well. We didn't really have problems with bug... More

GReat place to enjoy nature! Shady walking paths, 3 large lakes to fish or take a gentle cruise on the Alligator boat. Beautiful flowers and wild life to photograph!

Excellent place to kill a few hours if you want a break from the beach. Beautiful, safe wide open trails but easy access to many gators and other wildlife, not to mention tons of native flora

On our recent beach vacation in Sea Pines we took some time to explore the Preserve in the center of the plantation. It was a nice addition to the beach, ocean, and pool. There were three very nice sized lakes one of which is reserved for kid's fishing. The hiking trails are nicely shaded by large pine trees and there... More

The area was beautiful, we loved the boardwalks! I would recommend doing the walk early in the am as it gets hot in the afternoon.
