Situated on a mix of wooded islands and cordgrass marshes bordered by tidal streams, Palmetto Islands County Park presents a series of interconnected natural-surface and asphalt trails exploring what once was an aboriginal seasonal camp, plantation, brick-making area, and now county park. Today, you can hike amid maritime woods, along cordgrass marsh, and visit Nature Island. The walk continues to an elevated observation tower where you can look over the Wando River basin and other tidal waterways. Beyond that, the trek passes near picnic areas, fishing docks, and the balance of park offerings.
