Along the way on the Sculptured Oak Nature Trail, there is a branch-off to the Yaupon Trail, which is an 0.5-mile alternative trail. The Yaupon Trail ends at the beach, which is then accessible by boardwalk.

Loading Trails

After a short walk on the Sculptured Oak Trail, you will come to a branch and the Yaupon Trail is on the right. Both the Sculptured Oak and Yaupon trails lead to the beach, which is accessible by boardwalks. If you are looking for a longer walk you go out on one, cross a parking area, and return on the other. Restrooms and water are available at the office, and at facilities throughout the park. Insect repellent is recommended in warm weather.

Pets are not allowed on the beaches from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. (7 days a week) May 1 through Labor Day. This is a county ordinance that is effective on all public beaches in Horry County.
