Douglas Greenway Trail

One of the best kept secrets of Coffee County

July, 2023 by acw5403

Natives have a difficult time finding something nice to say about their hometown sometimes, and I had heard mixed reviews about this trail. In the past week, I have driven in a couple of mornings to take advantage of something I consider to be a gem of a trail. I began in town, to the right of Hobby Lobby. I cruised through the local college campus, followed a short MARKED detour (part of the bike trail) through a few quiet streets, then made my way back to the trail and behind a few businesses, passing by the caboose and local history museum before heading out of town. The trail continued through an industrial section of town (cool storage, body shop, trailer manufacturing) for about 1/4 mile before crossing the road and eventually ending at the Coffee County High School sports complex. I took the liberty of riding around the high school campus, in and out of the parking lots and around buildings and nearby neighborhoods. In the end, I clocked 11-12 miles.

Like anything else, it is what you make it... and WHEN you make it - early morning rides on this trail have been a very positive experience for me and my husband.

Love it. Great for kids. Very easy to ride

Georgia Coast Rail-Trail

Great! Looking forward to to more completed!

I ride both sections often. Fat tire bikes (32c or better) are recommended for the north section. I’d like to point out that the north section starts at Chaney Road and not a bit more south as mapped on this app.

A Little Bit of Everything

February, 2020 by weluvnascar

My husband and I rode this trail today and loved it! The scenery is a little bit of everything and all beautiful. We started at the Satilla River parking area and rode south. The trail takes you along the river, through a quiet residential area, then through the woods. Lots of trees and bird feeders through the residential area. The trail is in great shape, and it’s an easy ride. We will do it again!

A complete waste of time

Little to no scenery and close to a busy state road. I had to apologize to my family for wasting their time.

Former Seaboard railbed

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.

Summer 2016

July, 2016 by firebf881

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

Totally Awesome

2 Different Worlds

March, 2014 by misteradamj

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.

Great Trail

September, 2013 by lajune2

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.

Pedals and Pizza

July, 2013 by harperg

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.
