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.

I did not really even recognize this place when we drove in yesterday. There are lots of trees that have been removed. The good thing is - there are already more planted. We walked around the paths and ended up at the pond. We saw...More

We visit the park each time we come to Hilton Head. It's a nice walk with a lot of vegetation and wild life to see. Our last visit we were lucky enough to see an alligator sunning itself, along with a plethora of turtles

Unfortunately this place apparently had a lot of hurricane damage in the fall of 2016 and is in the process of being re-done. Although it's not back to what I'd call a well maintained nature preserve, it certainly has the potential and I'm sure in...More

Took the kids hiking here on a very cold day. Extensive foliage helped bread the wind. Small (~50 acres). Trails were well marked, foliage well labeled. Outside of us there was a couple who were birding. We were there primarily to hike. Given the size...More

We hoped to visit this preserve while vacationing on Hilton Head, but it's gate was shut and the padlocked with a "closed" sign. The preserve was badly damaged in Hurricane Matthew. It's not clear when or whether it will open again.

I've wanted to visit this place for years. We were the only ones on the property. The trails were self guided and well maintained, clearly marked with the names of trees and plants. It is a small area but sadly, you can never be free...More
