Edisto Beach State Park Hike

Edisto Beach State Park Hike Professional Review and Guide

"The hike travels to an ancient shell mound known as the Spanish Mount, situated on the banks of tidal Scott Creek. First, leave one of the state park campgrounds, then wander through maritime hardwoods, coming along Scott Creek, where marsh views await. Continue under live oaks, cedars, and palms to the stabilized shell midden, where you can see layers of shells piled over time and good panoramas of the surrounding estuary. The Forest Loop adds new trail on your return.

A trip to Edisto Beach State Park is a trip to yesteryear. This quaint park lies next to a small vacation village, with no high rises and very few chain stores. Edisto Beach has been
dubbed “Mayberry by the Sea.” Edisto Beach, 20 miles off South Carolina’s main coastal drag, US 17, is at the end of a dead-end road."
