Lighthouse Inlet Heritage Preserve web site
At the northeastern end of Folly Island you will find an undeveloped area with an outstanding view of the inlet and the Morris Island Lighthouse. A half-mile long hiking trail, most of which is paved, takes you from the park entrance to the beach. There is some evidence of vandalism here, but most of the area is in good shape. Finding a place to park your car may be difficult on summer weekends.
