Walk along a scenic tidal stream ensconced in maritime forestlands. Start on a bluff overlooking Awendaw Creek and a bordering tidal marsh, then wind in and out of woods, occasionally crossing boardwalks over open marshes. Farther on, extensive vistas of the Intracoastal Waterway and beyond to Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge are revealed. End at a spot called Walnut Grove, where massive live oaks enhance the palms and other waterside woodland.

I love this trail - low country coastal marshes and creeks. Great for trail running or walking. Parking at either end. Sometimes I take the dog - of course he loves it too. Flat and easy for him and me. It's referred to as the Awendaw passage, the final or beginning portion of the 400+ mile cross-state Palmetto Trail.
