A Lovel;y Easy Wetlands Walk on a Boardwalk

This is an easy walk on a boardwalk around a pond. There is an abundance of wildlife--more so in morning and early evening. We enjoyed our first visit to the

I am a traveling Ob/Gyn (drcathylbagleydotcom) who searches for serenity whenever/wherever I can. Port Royal Cypress Wetlands provided this for me and more offering a beautiful historic walking trail! It is great for families, couples, individuals providing breathtaking scenic landscapes and photo opportunities. It's as if a piece of heaven dropped from the sky and landed in the quaint town...

Took the family on an adventure and one of the stops was the Wetland Trail. We were very disappointed, the trail was not clearly mark therefore it was difficult to find. There wasn't any close parking available. Going on the walk it cuts through people's yard so I felt like we were going the wrong way but I was assured... More

The walk around the Cypress Wetlands or Port Royal is worth the side trip if in the area of the larger town of Beaufort and the Marine Corps training base at Parris Island. We saw numerous birds, including the rare (to me) American Anhinga. There were warning signs against venturing off the path because of alligators, though we never saw... More

Wonderful place. Do not hurry-look for the "turtle tracks" in the algae covered water. We saw egrets, anhingas, a gator, egret hatchlings. Fabulous place. Take binoculars. The boardwald has a telescopic look site-but I was a little short to use it. Lovely way to spend an afternoon.

Spring is a great time to visit the Cypress Wetlands. Boardwalk makes for easy walk. Birds nesting are close to see and photograph. Egrets, herons and many other impressive birds

This is a trail that is .6 miles around, but you can just walk partways and turn around. I have been visiting here since it first opened. The attraction here is that there are a variety of herons and egrets that roost and breed here during the spring and early summer. You can really get close to these birds from... More

Nicely constructed boardwalk and lots of good views of the many bird species that roost each evening. Can walk around the entire wetland in 30-60 minutes.

Lovely setting in small town. Park on the street and meander through pathways. Lots of turtles and egrets and herons. Also enjoyed beach path at end of town.
