Getting To Know The New Nature Trail
Sullivan’s Island has a new member to its family of nature trails called Sullivan’s Island Nature Trail. This wonderful addition to Sullivan’s Island is characterized by 650 feet of boardwalk and foot nature trail. The boardwalks were carefully designed by an environmental consultant and landscape specialist who ensured that they were angular paths that reflected island features e.g. the light house that is shaped like a triangle. Sullivan Island Nature Trail is positioned right off the Atlantic Street on Sullivan Island next to station 16.
It also has exemplary observation benches and decks that offer views of the harbor, vegetated dunes and forested wetlands that can only be termed as secluded and peaceful. The new nature trail offers visitors the best butterflying and birding experience in town.
This magnificent nature trail runs across the towns protected land and joins the beachfront via the station 16 beach access route. Sullivan Island Nature Trail was made a reality through the grant funds obtained from the Urban Greenbelt Grant Project in addition to the town money.
