Great trail, disappointing end

Great trail through some beautiful forest, with nice views over the marsh. The destination is rather disappointing though

access to the ancient mound is closed due to environmental issues. the trails are nice. hopefully the mound will be saved for visitors can enjoy the 4000 year old shell mound

This is a fun place to hike to. Not a long hike but a fun outing to get the kids energy out. It is an easy nature trail where you can see where the edisto indians oyster mounds.

Although it is a long, hot walk to the Indian mound, it is very well worth the trip. Bring mosquito repellent!!

This is a pleasant hike through the state park; there is a $5/person fee to get in. There are places along the path to stop and sit and look at the marsh; take bug spray and binoculars. The mound is interesting to see but it's when you think it is one-tenth the size that it used to be, you can... More

If you aren't a history buff or can't appreciate Native American history, the mound will be a let down. The mound is big and a lot of it has washed into the marsh with the changing route of the river. The mound was put there by local Native Americans approximately 4,000 years ago. The trail to the mound is long... More

The hike is great but a little of a let down once you get there. it is a pile of shells in the cliff on the river. IT is still a nice hike to there and the view of the wetlands is good.

If you like walking far to be disappointed, then this is the attraction for you. One of the suggestions in other reviews is to bike the trail. I 100% agree with this. The trail is paved, has a few cool spots, but overall isn't the greatest hike ever. Biking will get you there quick so you can get the heck... More

Four bikers, one runner. All enjoyed there time here. Don't stop with the Indian Mound - continue through the woods and across the boardwalks for some beautiful forest and lovely marsh vistas. Education center is clean and informative. Have fun
