Old Drake Trail

Old Drake Nature Trail

[Trails old drake photo]
Difficulty level: 1

Location:
Turn off Seabrook Island Road onto Old Drake Drive. The trail begins at the pumping station. Parking is along Old Drake Rd.

Trail Description:
This is the shortest trail. It provides easy access to 3 benches for sitting and enjoying the tranquility of the salt marsh. The trail is in the shape of a T. It goes through Loblolly pines and skirts the salt marsh before ending at clearly marked private property and the equestrian trail. At this point, just retrace your steps. Take the time to relax on one of the benches and listen for the sounds of pistol shrimp snapping and oysters clapping. Do not walk on the equestrian trail – it is not a place for people on foot, especially since the pine needles muffle the sound of a horse’s hooves and both of you may get a surprise!
