Easy trail with good footing. Beautiful views of tidal marshes and live oaks with Spanish Moss. In a state park with good facilities. No bugs in November but I can see how other times of year repellent would be a good idea.

Beautiful serene forest combined with spacious beach and good weather made for a sweet day! Park to be commended for well supplied and clean bathrooms and friendly gate personnel. It costs to get in.

Being from Oklahoma, all the trees and marshes were really beautiful. We didn’t see much wildlife or birds but the walk was really nice. Did about 5 miles total.

I loved running the rolling hills.

O wow this was NOT “easy”! Probably 500 tree roots and incline was fun with the powdery sand! I should have taken out another life insurance policy. Good workout tho!

My husband and I just finished up this trail. We enjoyed it especially the beach hike which was new to us. It rain most of the day which made the hike more bearable since we got a late start. Mosquitoes were not bad but probably because of the heavy rains. We did the trail backwards which I highly suggest for this trail. Take lots of water and some fruit or protein bars for sugar, the sun will take it out of you (again if you start late LOL). Will definitely do this again but it wasn't long enough. Needs to be 8 or 10 miles.

loved the "little mountain" with the kids. fun for the entire family, even our furbaby. Beautiful riverview as well.

Enjoyed it very much. Quiet and peaceful walking amongst wild horses. Take a swim in the ocean to cool off

Start along on the beach and finish in the woods. Nica easy beautiful hike

A Florida beach with driftwood. How could you go wrong?

This is the only trail within miles of me that offers some elevation. While it is near a road part of the way, it is not a busy road, and it did not interfere with the enjoyable ness of our hike. Overall, the hike took my group (two twenty somethings and a forty something) about two hours and forty minutes to complete. We did include the smaller optional loop about two miles into the hike. I highly recommend including it! You get to walk through some serious nature! We even saw a baby dear about five feet away from us! The path is shaded so it helps keep you cool in the heat of Florida. The only real downside to this hike is the shear amount of spiders everywhere. None of them ever bothered me, however, I have never seen so many HUGE spiders in my life. Keep your eyes peeled ;). I think it is best to go early morning or late afternoon. It is located in a very nice town (Amelia island) and it is worth it to explore the downtown area after as a reward for finishing the hike. I will be back to hike it again for sure!

Very easy, well-marked trail. I hiked it with my 73 yr-old father, 8 yr-old daughter and our dog. Great for this, though be careful of alligators near the water with your dog. Also, parts of the trail aren't shaded and it can get hot, so bring water. Lots of places to stop and sit. A very nice easy hike. Main trail is marked red. Short trail is yellow. Don't miss the cypress forest boardwalk just off the main trail. It's really neat. You likely won't see another hiker.

Totally recommend!!

These trails feature a great mixture of flat and climbing. As this part of coastal Florida goes, it is not that terribly rooty or sandy. Lots of shade. Well maintained. Deer, dillo, squirrels, raccoons. Great for walking too.

Did this around Easter this year with a 3 year old strapped to my back. Nice and easy trail, but needed to forward ~6 inch deep tidal steam to compete our circuit.

Part of the circuit was still closed from a hurricane last year.

This is NOT a trail. It is a walk on a beach that is nowhere near the fort mentioned (7 miles away). If you go to St Simon Island, go see the fort and lighthouse, plus the novel downtown but, unless you want a 1/4 mike walk down a crowded public beach, pass on this supposed “trail”!

Loved this trail! This trail is a really nice mix of trees and beach. Literally, half the trail is flora/fauna and the other is the ocean. Watch out for large spider webs. Make sure you wear sun screen and bug spray.

I’ve done this one several times. It’s flat and has some cool views of the marshes.

A very nice trail. You'll go through a Maritime forest, to open fields, under heavy oaks, to sand dunes and a beautiful beach. Bring water and food. This is a very nice hike and family friendly.

Beautiful wide trails, nice river view at one end, didn’t go to the plantation but did the whole trail loop. Listed here as 2.9, but on site as 3.2 as well. Definitely would recommend!

This is mainly a bike trail with beautiful canopied and open areas. It can be a little hot in the open areas. There are two half mile trails off the pavement to the water front. Parking is $3. We took our dog so we couldn’t go on the shoreline.

Mostly shady, well cared for trails, lots of butterflies and birds, even 3 peacocks! Trail back to plantation could have been better marked as the trail to the water at the north end would require one to walk along the steep beach back to the plantation visitors center. Very well kept National park however! Well worth the time.

very nice and easy to follow. not sure why it's considered moderate though, I'd say it is easy. friendly folks along the trails also.

Great trail. Lots to explore.

This is great walk but I would rate it as Easy. The trail is well groomed, wide, an almost entirely level except for the optional hill at the end. Wonderful view of the marsh.

So much to explore. Amazing place no one knows about.

Apparently we missed 70% of the trail because the trailhead wasn’t visibly marked and the map provided by park service wasn’t much help either. We are avid hikers, for the record, and found this to be very confusing. We ended up walking on the beach for 2 miles and walking the 2 miles back to our vehicle on the bike path. This was very unpleasant. The beach was beautiful though, and extremely quiet. We found beautiful seashells and enjoyed this portion of our walk immensely.
