Sea Pines Forest Preserve reviews
The preserve is a real treasure. We drove through the park first and then stopped to walk on the trails. The trails are wide and flat. A very enjoyable place to view animals in their habitat. more »
Nice shaded walk with plenty of wildlife. We saw more than one gator as well as large birds. As noted, it's $9 to drive in to the community, but its pretty quiet and there are plenty of trails and... more »
If you want a chance to get out and walk, and see what Hilton Head Island looked like before all the development of homes and commercial real estate, visit this location. We walked around a couple of hours and loved our experience. We saw beautiful trees, heard many different birds, and saw bodies of water. The path was easy to navigate and signs were displayed often enough we didn't get lost. Our alligator hunt was in vain, but we still felt like it was time well spent. Hilton Head is a beautiful island and it has many different trees, plants, and ither forms of wild life to enjoy while strolling in there home.
Lovely spot for an island hiking adventure. We adored the mostly shaded walking trails throughout the preserve. Enjoy a variation of habitats from marshes and bogs to open fields with wildflowers. Such an awesome place to identify plants and spot different animals. Avid birders will love this spot! Highly recommend, worth going alone or with a group and easily navigable. Bring water!
