Discovering this preserve in Hilton Head Island was a delight! There's a short straight walk from the parking lot to a trail that runs in a circle and has a lagoon in the middle. Many trees and plants have signs with information about them. Some...More

Quiet, peaceful and pretty. Love the large yellow flowers. Its great that the trees are maked so you know what they are. Grab a guide at the trail head. Educates you on lots.

When the tourists crowd you and the blazing sun roasts you, take a small break with a hike through the Audubon Newhall Nature Preserve. Just off of Palmetto Bay Road, you drive in, park and stroll around a pond and see the flora and fauna.

We loved the quiet and serenity this place has to offer. We saw a beautiful grey heron at the pond who was fascinating to watch. All the trees, bushes and plants are identified with signs to tell the observer about the vegetation.
