Hiking the SouthendThe majority of day visitors to the island spend their time hiking around and exploring the Southend. Within a short distance one can walk through oak trees draped in Spanish moss, visit the Dungeness historic district, cross boardwalks over marsh and sand dunes, and soak in a stretch of undeveloped beach.
There are several intersecting trails and roads in the area. A map and trail signs will help one to keep their bearings. The map will show the location of the 4 restrooms with drinking fountains as well.
