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.
The best part is the mulch trail from the parking lot to the "trail". The trail itself is barren grass next to power lines where tall weeds shroud the view of the woods making it difficult to see any wildlife and there is not much shade. There are some random trails made off the path but they aren't kept or have any specific destination.
It is very rare to see anyone on this path.
In the early morning, you will see deer. Be on the alert for snakes, and be sure to wear insect repellent. Heading South on the path, you will come to the New River. Take time to sit at the rest area where the path ends, and enjoy the beauty of the quiet river. This path offers a delightful escape from all of the intrusions we have in our life.
The trail is paved, 2.75 miles in length. It has some small rises, no real hills. You have to cross one road, but cars now have to stop and let you pass. There is parking and restrooms at both ends. It will eventually reach close to 7 or 8 miles in length, all the way to Brooklet.
