“Just an average gated community”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We went to the Sea Pines to go to Harbour Town for a dinner cruise. We paid $6.00 per car to enter. It is a lot of winding, wooded roads with expensive houses on them. There weren`t very many places to park to check out the scenery or wildlife. I didn`t see what everyone says is so great about it. We didn`t go back, once was enough.

“Go when it's not hot”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is a great walking attraction in HH. We've been in the summer. It's way to hot due to being in the woods. May was awesome. You walk very close to small alligators on an elevated walk. Lots of birds and great for taking pictures. Good place for a picnic also. Great walk for any age.

“Nice departure from the beach”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We rode our bikes through here and also parked and walked the walking trails. Saw a lot of wildlife and some beautiful trees and flowers. Some really breathtaking views, with the sun coming through the trees and the herons and other birds just hanging out. Beautiful.

“Nicholas Sparks like setting”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

This place would make a great setting for a Nicholas Sparks movie. It was so tranquil and beautiful in the woods by the water. On the "vanishing swamp" trail, we spotted a barred owl. We also saw a baby turtle, several other turtles and a bird that was able to go underwater for a while.

This is a great spot for a picnic lunch or a quiet walk with your special someone. The cost is $6 per vechicle.

“Great Excursion”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

By far this was a great way to hike in the forest. We were surprized at how peaceful and lush the forest and vegatation was and how the boardwalk actually allowed you to travel deep into the forest. We even saw an alligator along the way and many beautiful plants.
