April 22, 2019 - I was able to get on the trail from the west entrance, but about a quarter mile in both directions there are big gaps in the trail where it looks like some sort of bridge or structure has collapsed. Lots of construction equipment in the parking area.
Tried to access today and signs at trailhead said Closed with barricades blocking entry.
I started out at Fort Pulaski and only got 0.7 miles in before reaching an impassable bridge. Went to the halfway point parking. Heading east led to a spot that had severe erosion. Heading west wasn't as bad. There was some erosion but I was able to go more than 2 miles from that point. It is beautiful and peaceful out there but I wanted to do 12 miles and was not able to because of the lack of maintenance of the trail.
The trail was great. My Fitbit did not calculate 3 miles; it calculated only 2.70 miles.
$3 fee per adult. Easy walk along the old canal to the Ogeechee River and back. A hiking trail goes off to the left after you pass the restrooms. Bring bug spray in the summer.
Can be very muddy after a lot of rain. A quiet walk through what was once rice fields in the New River marsh. Trail ends at the New River where the old railroad bridge had burned down. Wish the trail went all the way to the rivers edge.
Nice easy flat trail with great views of the lowcountry marsh. Concrete for about two thirds of the trail. Chance to see a lot of wildlife and make sure to have bug spray during the summer.
We took our bikes thinking it would be a great trip with tons to see. It was beautiful for sure. However, the trail is washed out about 1 mile in either direction from the middle of the trail. We rode from one end to the next and totaled about 2 miles. It wasn’t completely disappointing. At least we didn’t have to pay for parking...
As other reviewers have mentioned, this trail needs some work. Right around 2.5 miles from the Fort Pulaski entrance, the pedestrian bridge is washed away completely. Fortunately, someone has put up some pipes to walk across so you can continue on the path. There are a few other places that have eroded away and the path is almost gone. Then, you can’t reach the end, because the boardwalk is gone. Also, on the map they say you can go a little ways east from the Fort entrance. That trail is trashed completely, as I only was able to get about .2 miles before it was impassable. But the views scenery is beautiful and you should definitely check it out if you are in the area. Just know what you are heading into! All that being said, it’s a beautiful setting. I ran the out and back from
We used to love to go to McQueen's Island Trail, but it is no longer even enjoyable or safe. There are no more trash bins, porta potty's, and worst of all the walking bridge has been broken now for over two years? Why can't this be maintained with the county taxes we all pay to live here? It is a disgrace.
This is a great trail for beginners. Very flat and scenic. The trail is not lit, which is the only downside. If you’re halfway through when it starts getting dark, you better hurry up or you’ll be stuck in pitch black.
We enjoyed our ride from Ft. Pulaski on a warm February day, but noticed the storm damage others have mentioned. A bridge with planks making it passable by walking; a couple of trees across the trail you have to carry bikes over; and the totally gone bridge at 2.2 miles as mentioned. We assumed the damage was from last fall (2017) but see from other reviews the problems go back much longer. We certainly aren’t calling out anybody who lives locally and supports this trail, but I don’t see why they couldn’t do some fund raising - start by putting a sign at the damage giving a website where one can donate.
