I rode out at Hunting Island State Park, SC for the first time since this past fall. This once beautiful park, and recently renourished beach, isn't looking so good. All of the Red Bay trees are dead from a forgien beetle and fungus invasion that makes the forest look half alive. The State Park Service has installed groins perpendicular to the beach, making beach riding a cyclocross like adventure.
Some of you like to camp there and visit while visiting the Lowcountry. I thought I'd pass on this information to help anyone planning a trip here.
