A well-marked trail leads you around to a bit of history...Native American. These live oaks are 200 to 400 years old, some having ferns that are attached to them epiphytically (look it up!). You will also see smooth palmetto and yaupon holly. Bug spray!

It's a simple but unique spot for hike that is connected to the history of the island. The trees and flora make it a peaceful break in the busy day.

Walking through a piece of history. Wear mosquito spray in order to enjoy the walk. Places to sit along the way too.

A great place to walk, bird watch, or picnic. Not a very big area and you can view the whole thing in less than 30mins.
