How to Get There
Take US #17 to the town of Awendaw, then turn right onto Doar Road. When you reach the Awendaw Town Hall, be sure to take the fork off to the left. Continue down Doar Road and look for a sign that reads “Sewee Trail”. Turn right onto Forest Service road #243 (unpaved), which is known as Salt Pond Road. About halfway down the road, you will see the trail entrance on the right-hand side of the road. If you are driving, you will need to proceed to the parking area at the end of the road.
