Please don't let the entrance fee to Sea Pines deter you from visiting the preserve. Miles of paths to explore true island forest. A bit of wilderness right on HHI! Get out there, as they say!

We walked here today and was in the shade with somewhat of a breeze!. The trail is well marked. There is a restroom facility and a local fishing lake. This is a good place to bike, also.

First, you must pay a fee to enter. That's okay, but it was a big disappointment. Just not enough to do. We did enjoy sitting in the rocking chairs near the harbor.
