I have run it several times. The parking lot is not located where the map shows it. The run from the lot to under the highway can be sketchy, there was a neighborhood under construction and some trash from there is on the trail. Once you get by all that it is nice, we see deer, turtles, and alligators. Going towards the marsh is a nice run early with the sunrise and animals running around. If you do a little history lesson of the area it is really neat how the area was used for rice farming and timber harvesting.
Not a whole lot to see here. Definately one of the least scenic trails I've been on. Came out and pulled 7 or 8 ticks off of me.
I am so grateful to have this convenient and amazing park to retreat to on a regular basis. Just one of the many things I love about Richmond Hill, GA.

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.
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.
This trail is great for seeing a lot of wildlife. We have seen barred owls, deer, hawks, snakes, and turtles. There are also signs of beavers. Very flat, paved, and a great place for walking your pets on a leash. The trail passes through thick woods, past marshy areas, and by undeveloped fields used for agriculture. Bathrooms and parking at both ends of 2.75 mile trail.
I had been here several times before, but could never find the Trail Head. If you face the canal/water, the trail Head is on the far left and starts out Gravel.
When you come to the first Bridge, it turns to Concrete on the other side. when you come to the first trail on your left, you can follow it or keep going straight, the trail is not marked, but that is OK, because the Trail is in the shape of a Square. The Trail turns back to Gravel for about 1/3 of the trail.
The worst part of the Trail was the beginning to the end, with the Horse flys and sand Nats biting us.
We hit the Trail around 2PM, The Temperture was about 90F degrees and we were in the shade for most of the Trip.
Be sure to carry some Bottle Water with you, and a fly swatter. lol You might try some long pants, long sleeve shirt and a bug net for your Head.
My Wife and I may try it again when the Weather is cooler, and perhape the Bugs will not be as bad.
My wife and I road the trail in the heat of the day with 80 degree temperature. The trail has about 40% shade and might be best to ride early in the morning or late after noon for max shade.
It is a very nice trail, the clean restrooms at both ends were very nice, with picnic tables.
Very peaceful. Enjoy walking to the river. The information boards are very helpful in understanding how the flooding of the old rice fields worked. The shaded benches for resting are a nice addition. A nice community resource.
