Marsh View Trail transitions from southern pines into maritime forests with large oaks and rewarding salt marsh views. The brisk 0.4-mile stroll also includes a popular dog park and ends by overlooking Sullivan’s Island and Isle of Palms. East Cooper Land Trust, now Lowcountry Land Trust, proudly protects Marsh View Trail forever with a conservation easement.
In 2012, author Mary Alice Monroe, Mount Pleasant Waterworks, the Town of Mount Pleasant, and East Cooper Land Trust, now Lowcountry Land Trust, created the pollinator garden along Marsh View Trail. Many volunteers have worked to maintain the Marsh View Trail pollinator garden over the years, including Jackie Ashbaugh, Suzanne Kennerty, members of the Alhambra Garden Club, community members, and Tri-County Master Gardeners.
To access the Marsh View Trail, direct your GPS to 1619 Rifle Range Road, Mount Pleasant, SC 29464. Between Mount Pleasant Waterworks and Whiteside Elementary School, turn onto Fred McKay Way. Near the baseball field, there is a marked entrance to Marsh View Trail. Walk approximately 100 yards along the trail to access the buzzing pollinator garden!
