If you like great outdoors or like to watch birds, this is the place for you. I think every type of animal to this region is here, including alligators. Peaceful and reflective area to visit.

We had a GREAT time here... we went at the end of August 2012. There was a sign which has maps (it was a lot bigger than I expected). We are going back around Memorial Day and we plan on bringing bikes and exploring it some more. There was a beautiful butterfly garden that was covered in butterflies and big catepillars. There were many different types of birds and there are signs along the path that show you the names of the different birds. After walking for awhile we came to the pond and this area the trees were COVERED with birds... it was really cool! I got some awesome pictures. I can't wait to go back and check out the rest of the area!

Nice, shady walking paths and great bird watching! You can also bring your bicycles and ride the path. Great way to spend a day!

Great place to walk, relax, read a book, paint or just view that many types of wildlife and flora and fana that makes the low country so popular and the nice part is it's forever changing. Be prepared to be impressed and amazed as nature puts on her daily show.

This is a really pretty natural place. There are something like 20 miles of trails, so if you want to really explore, bring a bike.
