It was a good time walking around Cannon's Point Preserve. It was nice walk around the different trails. Had a lot of large oaks with of course spanish moss hanging on them. Be aware of the limited hours.

We loved our visit to Cannon's Point Preserve. It is a bit out of the way at the north end of the island and has limited hours, but it is worth it if you have a few hours and want to get exercise. Once you park, you check in with the staff. Everything on the property is accessible only via walking or bicycling so allow at least 2-3 hours at a minimum. I walked on several trails and saw the chimney at the overseer's house, as well as the marsh. The others on our group rode bikes 2.5 miles to the plantation ruins. The Spanish moss hanging from the trees and the lack of cars make this a peaceful escape with nature. It's the perfect chance to experience the low-country beauty of the area. Once you get ready to leave, you have to check-out with the staff since they close the gates and property at closing time.

Great place to hike. Pay attention to hours open. Take bug spray. The gravel is full of no-see-ums and their bites can itch like crazy!

Hi there! We're so glad you got out to enjoy Cannon's Point Preserve during this time of uncertainty. Nature is healing, even if a few no-see-ums decide to join you on your hike! Thank you for your suggestions of paying attention to open hours and bringing bug spray. With limited volunteer availability, our hours of operation are also limited. The Preserve is open Saturday-Monday from 9am-3pm. And if you forget bug spray, our wonderful volunteers stationed in the Education Pavilion have a few bottles for guests to borrow. Thanks again!

It’s a beautiful forest and a wonderful spring walk. The trails off to the side of the main road means you can add more miles to the round trip. Bring water. We were too early for bugs.

Nice location to walk along trails with some history and informational panels to add to your visit. The hike to the end and back is about 5 miles. I would imagine it would be very hot in the summer although there is plenty of shade. Lots of old trees, Spanish moss and some ruins. The only wild life we seen was a woodpecker. I would also think that bugs and ticks would be a problem in the warmer months.

Thank you for visiting Cannon's Point Preserve! We're so glad you enjoyed yourself and got to stretch your legs a bit. If you're ever able to visit during the spring or fall, the local and migratory wildlife (especially birds) is abundant! Hope you can get back soon. Thanks again!
