Marsh View Trail
The Marsh View Trail conservation easement is on a property comprised of two parcels totaling approximately 57 acres. The property is owned by the Commissioners of Public Works of the Town of Mount Pleasant and the donated conservation easement was granted in 2010. The trailhead is located at 1619 Rifle Range Road behind Mount Pleasant Waterworks and Mamie P. Whiteside Elementary School.
This property contains uplands, salt marsh, a hammock island and a paved quarter-mile walking trail that winds through the old live oak trees and opens up to an expansive view of the marsh and salt flat. In 2012, East Cooper Land Trust partnered with several community groups to construct a Butterfly Garden along the Marsh View Trail to provide habitat and a learning opportunity for aspiring naturalists.
