Two trails hopefully merged to one someday. I enjoyed the trail in White Oak, walking across some of the old trestles a better chance to see wildlife and the beauty of the marsh.
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
we rode from Kingsland, GA to Woodbine - and the scenery upon arrival was such an awesome reward!
This should really be considered 2 short trails since they do not connect and are worlds apart as far as riding conditions. The south side or Woodbine trail is concrete and manicured. A very easy ride. The north side or White Oak trail is rugged; not paved and not manicured. A more challenging ride. You definitely need fatter tires for this side. My mountain bike worked just fine. Since I enjoy both paved and not paved trails. I feel both sides have their merit. The scenery is great on both sides and I parked near the Post Office of each town.
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.
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.
Rode this trail 5-19-13 and found it to be very nice, peaceful and easy. Good access from Satilla River Park and there is access from other locations. The Trail starts out a little tricky and bumpy but goes through some nice areas and neighborhoods. The new section is really nice and go fast cyclists can get up and going. There was virtually no one on the trail when we were there. My only complaint is it is too short for serious riders. We ended up running up and down the new section several times to get some miles in.
Rode the trail north-south and back. First of all, thanks to everyone who worked and is working on this trail. Its a nice tree-lined path. However, you must have fat-tires to even consider this trail. Most of the trail is acceptable but the 1 mile section north of county road 252 is large rocks, not crushed, and barely passable. Also, the northern terminus of the trail ends on a private road that leads to a small horse farm. Thus, there is no parking (on either end of the trail). Eventually, I hope, the trail will be connected with the Woodbine trail and the surface improved. But that bridge will have to be crossed (and built) when we come to it.
Woodbine has added another 1.5 miles of nice concrete to their existing mile of trail. Rode it today (3-16-12) as enjoyed it much. Had to park 4 miles away at the Ex 14 truckstop as I drive an 18 wheeler, but the roads are quiet getting to the trail. (took Gap Swamp Rd and Billyville Rd to US 17, then 1/4 mi north to Liza Rudolph Rd west.) Looking forward to more pavement and thank you to the Path Foundation and local advocates!

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 be paved with concrete. Looking forward to that day, it truly will be a beautiful ride.
"This is a nice little trail! Be careful when crossing Ga158, the other crossings are easy. I hope to see the trail extended sometime- the possibilities are exciting as the railbed goes N to Augusta, and S to Willacoochee!"
