Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

"Poinsett State Park is wonderfully charming, which is surprising for such a sizable park. It encompasses 1,000 acres, but has a delightful, old-fashioned feel. Many of the structures were built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the 1930s, and even the Coquina Trail was cut by their hardworking hands. The trail loosely loops around the park’s lake, bringing you high upon a hillside, and down through a marshy wetland. With this kind of diversity, it’s easily a favorite."
