Hilton Head may be famous for the sparkling waters that envelop the island, but there’s more to it than its marine appeal. Nestled within the island’s confines are the calming and picturesque sceneries of places like the Sea Pine Forest Reserve.

How can you explore the reserve? Bask in the island’s beauty atop your own horse at one of Hilton Head’s most popular attractions — the horseback trail tour at Lawton Stables.

This tour is sure to unleash the inner nature-lover in you. Saddle up and prepare for a horseback experience in one of the island’s most picturesque spots.



You’re on horseback and trotting through a trail in the Sea Pines Forest Reserve. As you ride along, you’re treated to the sweet sounds of nature — from birds chirping to the rustling of trees and grass as the wind blows.

That’s not all — you’ll have more than enough time to immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the reserve’s 600+ acres. At this size, you can get a full hour touring the reserve under the watchful eye of your own guide.

You can experience all this and more, and all it takes is a short drive to Lawton Stables at 190 Greenwood Drive, Hilton Head Island.
