Savannah National Wildlife Refuge Professional Review and Guide
"Half a day's hike through beautiful marshes. Magnificent alligators and a great variety of bird life add spice. The dikes crisscrossing the ponds, pools, and marshes make for especially lovely—and easy—hiking. The trail connects numerous hardwood hammocks. There is a good chance of encountering great horned owls here at any time.
During migration periods, warblers are seen in great numbers and in great variety. On the refuge, rice birds like bobolinks and red-winged blackbirds are very numerous, as is the boat-tailed grackle. Cormorants, anhingas, herons, egrets, and common moorhens are often seen; purple gallinules and least bitterns are seen often here in summer, but seldom elsewhere in South Carolina. The stars of the show, however, are the alligators. They range from small fellows of a foot or two in length to big guys more than 10 feet long. They are quite numerous."
