  • Three great trails and you can pokemon go here
  • Very peaceful ☮️ historic site, beautiful views of the surrounding swamps and grasslands, nice walking trails and boardwalks. Glad to see that the USMC Marines on Parris Island are preserving this very important piece of American history. Thanks for your service to our country!
