We visited a few months after the hurricane came through. It was a little cluttered and a little smelly, but still absolutely beautiful and abundant with coastal animal life.

I have been going to Hilton Head for over 15 years and had never gone to the Sea Pines Forest Preserve until this year. It is a really nice place to explore nature, bird watch, and even do some fishing.

Be sure to visit the Preserve and go to the Indian grounds. Little piece of interesting history. Great place to walk or ride bikes. Picnic areas, boat/alligator tour. If you go during the summer be sure to bring bug spray!

Beautiful nature. It was interesting to see the damage from the hurricane. It's a nice, peaceful trail to walk.

The sea Pines preserve is basically inaccessible as an enormous number of trees have fallen from. Hurricane mathew. Hilton Head and sea lines were direct hit. The Plantation is littered with trees and brush that are being cleared as humanly possible. Hopefully it will reopen...More

Many of the trails are still closed. We were able to see the Shell Ring, but we were very disappointed. The bugs were also eating us alive so we did not stay very long.

We mostly stayed in the car and drove around because the weather was cool. We were able to see much of the park and beautiful scenery.
