Enjoyed walking on wooden walkways above the 'disappearing swamp' and other wetlands. Nice drive in park also. Careful-the drive is on some pretty bumpy roads in some places.

Enjoy this wonderful Nature Preserve if you're visiting Hilton Head! It is really worth your time to explore all the natural beauty around you. There are interesting birds to spot, maybe see an alligator if you're lucky and enjoy all the vegetation!

This is a perfect way to enjoy some of the natural beauty of the island. Even though the day was overcast we enjoyed this very much.

On one of our many bike journeys we decided to explore this area. Even though the weather was cool, we still saw 5 alligators along this route, several herons and other wildlife.

Went here to look around. A lot of little shops. Stopped at a bakery for coffee and a muffin. Lighthouse is there to climb. There are trails for biking and walking. Cost $6 too enter but well worth it.
