The highlight of the trail is definitely the end – there is a lookout deck overlooking the harbor. It has panoramic views from Sullivan’s Island to Fort Sumter to downtown Charleston. When the tide is out you can walk out to a tiny little beach. When we were there this time, the tide was way in so we stopped at the observation point.

This is a great hike, especially if you are staying in Mt. Pleasant. The entrance is very close to the base of the bridge, so if you wanted to turn it into a longer walk you could climb the bridge next!
