Rosebrock Park

There is a new park in Dorchester County!  The park entrance is located at the intersection of Hwy 61 and Hwy 165.

From the Dorchester County Parks and Recreation webpage:

Richard H. Rosebrock Park is 76 acres including 2.4 miles of walking trails and also has picnic shelters and an outdoor classroom. Future amenities include a canoe/kayak launch and a fishing pier on the Ashley River. Park hours are 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM, Standard time and 7:00 AM - 7:00 PM, Daylight Savings time.

See trail map here.

Audubon South Carolina contributed some of the images shown on the kiosk at the trail head.  During a recent visit, we saw or heard a variety of birds including Gray Catbird, Pine Warbler, Brown Thrasher, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Veery, Northern Cardinal, Yellow-billed Cuckoo, Tufted Titmouse, Carolina Wren, Carolina Chickadee, Belted Kingfisher, Turkey Vulture, Black Vulture, Red-bellied Woodpecker, Downy Woodpecker, Pileated Woodpecker, Northern Flicker, Red-eyed Vireo and American Redstart.
