The Spanish Moss Trail: A Walk With a View

Where History Meets Nature

The Spanish Moss Trail is a power trail meant to preserve Beaufort’s landscape and history. Formerly the Magnolia Rail Line, the Spanish Moss Trail was restored in 2013 and is now a top attraction for locals as well as visitors. It’s the most original and picturesque way to discover the town surroundings! Enjoy gorgeous water and marsh views along the way and immerse yourself in a delightful coastal setting.

While exploring the trail, you can feel the sun on your face, admire the tall trees, and pass through the old railroad depot with its deep red bricks. If you continue toward the water, you’ll get a glimpse of Battery Creek and Rabbit Island in the distance. You can also observe a variety of wild animals such as herons, egrets, and even stingrays – if you’re lucky!

A Fun Way to Discover Beaufort, SC

The Spanish Moss Trail is a must if you’re looking for a day trip! You can easily access the trailhead and create your itinerary while discovering the surroundings. Walking is always a great option, but there are several other activities you can choose from to make your adventure even more special.

  • Run: Stay healthy during your visit and exercise! You will hardly notice you are working out with all of the beautiful scenery.
  • Bike: The local’s favorite way to enjoy the Spanish Moss Trail. The paved path is ideal for bikers as well as pedestrians and is wide enough to welcome both!
  • Skate: If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, skating or rollerblading are great options. The flat terrain makes it easy for both beginners and pros.
  • Fish: Did you know that you can also fish along the Spanish Moss Trail? Grab your rods and be on the lookout for redfish!

To make the magic last longer, why not go on a picnic? Pack yourself some Southern treats and watch the sunset over the river. It’s the perfect way to end your day and make unforgettable memories!
