Sea Pines is getting busier and busier every passing year so the Forest Preserve offers a peaceful place to bike and walk without the added worry of vehicular traffic. However, hurricane damage to trees and trails is still apparent as this area seems to be the last place full clean-up has occurred. The fishing ponds and picnic areas are interesting as well as the shell ring. Be aware that the Sea Pines sewage treatment plant is located hidden among the trees but can be smelt. The Preserve is eminently worthy of preservation and should be a top priority not a 'we'll get around to it later' situation. Do go, however, as it is an often overlooked venue at Sea Pines Plantation by first time and even subsequent visitors.

We always make a stop in the Forest Preserve. Sometimes we park and walk and other times we drive the loop and get out and walk around. There is a lot to see!

What a beautiful preserve. The trails are easily negotiated with a baby stroller and by less nimble walkers. Lots of information on the flora and fauna in the area. Well worth the visit.

My family and I ventured to Sea Pines Forest Preserve during our Spring Break visit to Hilton Head. The preserve is a protected area for wildlife habitat and outdoor exploration, and includes paths, boardwalks and bridges. A few minutes after we started walking, we observed a HUGE alligator in the water. We were safely able to get about 10 feet away, which made for some great photos and GoPro footage. During our hike, we saw many interesting birds and small critters. Near the end of our adventure, we spotted 15-20 baby alligators sunning on the grassy shore of the water. If you're an outdoor enthusiast, who is looking for a peaceful walk/hike with remarkable views, I recommend Sea Pines Forest Preserve!
