Beautiful birds. Got great pictures. Even saw an alligator. It was an enjoyable quiet walk. Loved the boardwalks over the marsh. Whole walk is under a mile.
We enjoyed this lovely spot. We walked the trail and spotted many species of birds and an alligator. This was a great surprise since we were just passing by and happened to stop and discovered this great little area!
The birds just kept coming and jockeying for a position in the trees to spend the night. Had not been for mosquitoes we would have stayed longer...a must see when you come to town.
Was able to see birds,baby alligator and turtles if all sizes. Lots of lizards as well. Nice walk around the ponds.
The cypress wetland is a string of 5 ponds between Paris and Richmond Avenues. They naturally filter storm water and slowly release it to the Beaufort river. The first, largest, pond is a rookery for lots of wading birds - several species of heron and egret, wood storks, white ibis, bittern, anhinga, and ducks. Hundreds of birds will be seen... More

If you want to see herons and egrets of all kinds, gators, wood ducks, ibis, bitterns and more without walking for miles, then this is the place. Easy walk on trail and boardwalk, and the wildlife is very close. Great place for wildlife photographers. Great job Port Royal!
Port Royal has done a great job building this preserve. I've been visiting regularly since early spring and watching the "babies" being born/hatching... wonderful variety of egret, heron, anhinga, gallinule, cormorant, predators, too many to mention. Turtles, frogs, alligators...the list goes on. A nice 1/4 mile walk around trail, platform with viewing lens. Bring your leashed pet if you like,... More
