This short section, of what will eventually become a 68-mile-long Rail-Trail, was opened in spring 2010 and parallels Rt. 110/25/US 17 from Morris/Vanzandt Road to Chaney Road. Coastal Georgia Rails to Trails, Inc., the organization responsible for transforming the abandoned CSX rail corridor, envisions a 10-foot wide multi-use trail for the enjoyment of walkers, cyclists, joggers, equestrians and nature lovers.
The Georgia Coast Rail-Trail will eventually stretch from Kingsland north to Riceboro, a lush corridor of longleaf pine forest, marsh and saw grass, which crosses tidal rivers and creeks. The scenery is unmatched, and the trail will be appropriately planned to maintain the integrity of wetlands and wildlife habitat. Multiple trailheads will provide easy access to this unspoiled ecological system along Georgia's coast.
While the trail bed already exists, much of it is still in private hands. So for now stick to the public right-of-way and do not cross private property that is clearly marked as such.
You'll find another short section of the Georgia Coast Rail-Trail in nearby Woodbine, south of the Chaney Road end point. Visit the Woodbine Section
of the Georgia Coast Rail-Trail for more information.
White Oak is just west of I-95 in southeast Georgia. The trailhead is located at the White Oak Post Office (25 McKinnon Road N), near Burnt Fort Rd./Rt. 252. There is plenty of parking, a playground and picnic tables.

Tried to ride this new trail today and was unable to due to it's surface. Large crushed rocks from recycled I-95 pavement are just too big to safely travel. Talked with Monkey Wrench staff on St. Simon's Island and they assured us that it will eventually ...
