Biked the stretch from the library downtown out to the golf courses at Cherokee and back. Nice stretch with 2 shaded bench rest stops with water. A few road crossing with decent sight lines. Saw a dozen folks working out and 2 folks transporting themselves via bike to/from work. Nice to see it used, miles marked, and two trailheads.
It's hot in South Georgia during August, so ride this trail in the morning. There is a good bit of shade but about 1 and 1/2 miles are out in the open. Best place to park is at the Lower Meigs Road trail head. It's a nice parking lot, but no restrooms. You can go north to downtown or south to the airport from here.
We started at the downtown end and road south to the airport. The portion from downtown to around the West View Cemetery really needs some attention,i.e. garbage strewn along the trail, broken glass and grass over-growing the edges. After that rough part, the trail was very nice and is used extensively by walkers, runners and bikers. Crossing US-319, a major four-lane highway, was all right, if you pay attention and use the crosswalk which has signals. The first mile after crossing US-319 is out in the open with a number of driveways and road crossings, then it slides back into the trees until you reach the airport. Shady and peaceful along this part.
Overall a good ride, (we did the entire 15 miles out and back.)
Drove down from Atlanta while headed to ride the Woodbine GA rail trail as well as a swing through Jesup, GA for lunch at JONES KITCHEN. This is a great meat and veggie buffet open only 11-2 Monday - Saturday.
In Douglas, we parked on the South Georgia State College Campus and caught the trail in the middle. We rode first south and realized why we had seen nothing when looking for the trail at the middle school, There are no signs for the trail entrance at this location. We found the trail actually starts behind two metal post on the front side of the school on the north edge of the parking lot driveway.
We then backtracked and went north to the very end of the Douglas Trail which is across a new bridge over Twenty-Mile Creek. Beyond this bridge the rail trail abruptly ends and currently is nothing but grass in the former Georgia Florida Railroad Right-of-Way. We posted a photo showing this sudden stop.
It is a nice but short trail
This was a well maintained, safe, and scenic trail. It is paved with concrete; wide enough for plenty of people. The day I walked, it was only me. There are also dirt trails coming off the concrete path. They are safe, easy to walk. Although the concrete trail is about 2.4 miles, I made a 7.4 mile walk by taking some of the extra dirt paths, the loop, and walking back to my starting point (instead of getting picked up at the end of the trail.)
There are places to sit, pic nic, and fish.
If I could add half a star, I'd give 4 1/2 stars for this event. The trail is very nice, much of it wide enough for three abreast. The "trail proper" is attractive, intermittently shaded, and well off the road. As mentioned in the reviews, connecting trail areas are somewhat less appealing. Also, I agree that trail signage could be improved, as well as adding numerical addresses for trail heads.
The apres ride aspect of Moultrie's square? 5 stars! Lunch at Three Crazy Bakers (wonderful!) and interesting boutique shopping around the picturesque courthouse square. Pick up BBQ to go on the way out of town at The Barbeque Pit. Last stop before Valdosta? Peaches in Barney!
Great for jogging, walking, or biking. Very nice!
Walked this trail for the first time today, and was pleasantly surprised at how well this trail is maintained and how clean and well kept it is. We plan to go walk this trail again in the morning. We seen lots of wildlife and even walked up on a beautiful Doe! We also saw a cute little Oak snake who let us take a picture of him, then he scurried off on his way. Definitely will be planning many more enjoyable walks on this trail. :-)
This trail is very pretty, my family and I enjoyed our Christmas walk out here. It is kept very clean and has some gorgeous views. Definitely a new favorite go-to trail.
I lived in this town my first year out of college and rode my bike out in the country. This trail was not here then . I was surprised at how ruff some parts were in my velomobile but the starts and stops were many in town. After you get out of town it was a nice ride. Only saw one other rider in the whole time on the trail.
Today (September 7, 2013) was my first day riding on the trail. I traveled from McRae, Georgia to ride on the trail for safety reasons. I really enjoyed the ride. I only wish it would connect to Telfair County. Nice trail, only the ride was too short. It was a nice treasure to find. Thank you all so much for constructing such a wonderful trail, many rest areas, and smooth road. Again, it was an enjoyable evening.
We really enjoyed riding on this trail. We went on a Saturday and parked at the airport. Rode all the way to the end and back for a 15 mile ride.
The trail was nice and had some very nice scenery.
The part I liked the least was riding beside the busy hwy, and having to cross the hwy at a red light.
We used the pedestrian crossing, waited for the walk signal- about halfway across the road, it turned to "No walk" without any countdown, or warning! Luckily, the cars waited- but that was pretty scary to me!
The next time we ride the trail, I may park downtown and skip the Highway side of the ride.
Nice trail. Flat. Some street crossings, but OK. Work is underway to extend the trail north.
At the museum, go uphill a half block and you will see a nice Italian/Pizza restaurant on the right.We took a Pizza home on our bike.
