Hilton Head Island has incredible scenery everywhere you look, and one of the best ways to take in the majesty of it all is on the hiking trails. Lucky for you, Hilton Head is home to many great places to explore nature, and we have a few suggestions for you.
Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge
The breezy, laid-back terrain at Pinckney Island Refuge is an ideal hiking spot for just about anyone. There are 4,053 acres of wildlife to explore, with more than 14 miles of trails, so there is plenty to choose from. You can tough it out or take it easy, your choice! And nature lovers will be mesmerized by the Lowcountry marshland that’s home to various creatures and nesting habitats.
Sea Pines Forest Preserve
Hikers all over love Sea Pines Forest Reserve, and with 605 acres filled with wildflowers, footpaths, and lakes, what’s not to love? It’s also close to Harbour Town and South Beach, making it a local favorite as well.
Jarvis Creek Park
Jarvis Creek Park is a great place to be one with nature and has a playground for the younger crowd who might not want to partake in hiking. It’s on the smaller side with a 1.1-mile loop, making it perfect for those just beginning to get into hiking. Plus, you’re bound to see birds galore since so many trees surround the main lake.
When you’re on one of America’s favorite islands, you’ll definitely want to visit the beach, of course! So, it’s handy that Burkes Beach hosts a coastal trail along the coast for full views of all the surrounding beauty. And don’t forget that often times these trails are meant for bikes too if you’d rather pedal your way around!
So, take a hike! To Hilton Head Island, that is. Reserve your spot now and get out in the great outdoors of the Lowcountry.
