This easy one mile loop features interpretive stops and a boardwalk overlooking a prehistoric shell ring. The trail offers views of the salt marsh, tidal creek and Intra coastal Waterway.

The mystique surrounding this 1 mile self-guided interpretive trail dates back 4000 years. The trail begins along a shady lane of trees, which opens into an area heavily influenced by the forces of nature and man. A large portion of the area is scarred by Hurricane Hugo and wildfire. It is a picture of land in recovery.

Featuring five interpretive stops and a 120-foot boardwalk overlooking a prehistoric shell ring, the trail offers breathtaking views of the salt marsh, tidal creek and Atlantic Intra coastal Waterway.

Note: For hikers only, this trail is for day use and there is no camping along this trail. During temperate months, be prepared for biting insects and high temperatures. Be advised of big-game hunting seasons. Avoid using the trail during excessively wet periods.
