Poinsett State Park

The weekend of November 13 I visited Poinsett State Park. Heading east on 378 toward Sumter, turn south on 261 and drive about 6 miles to the park. State park fees are usually very reasonable, but there is no charge at all for this one. It features a nice network of trails, and I hiked the 1.5-mile Coquina trail that encircles an old mill pond. The trail is named for a type of naturally-occurring limestone made of broken seashells; the bathhouse, built in the 1930's by the Civilian Conservation Corps, is made of coquina. It was a good hike, and I'd like to return and check out some of the other trails.
