Where Nature and History Meet St Marys is the gateway to Cumberland Island, Georgia's largest and southernmost barrier island. Here pristine maritime forests, undeveloped beaches and wide marshes whisper the stories of both man and nature. Natives, missionaries, enslaved African Americans and Wealthy Industrialists all walked here. Cumberland Island is also home to over 9,800 acres of Congressionally designated Wilderness.

Beautiful trail in a spectacular place. Got off the ferry and hit the trail from sea camp. It begins with spanish moss trees overhead and transitions into some areas with pine trees. Designated camping sites are nice and have fire pits. There is no drinking water in the backcountry section. The ocean and seashore are steps away from the trail.

Spectacular. Simply a gem. You won't be disappointed.

Beautiful and varied vegetation, wildlife, and settings make this a must for when you have 4 days and want roger outside. Just prepare for raccoons and exposure to ticks and chiggers.

Backpacking at Cumberland was seriously awesome. The terrain is super flat, at times muddy. Had a blast on this trip. It's a great backpacking experience for beginners since there aren't many tough obstacles.

Thoroughly enjoyed staying at Stafford Beach. Plenty places to string up a hammock for the night; fire ring to have a campfire too. A short walk to the beach makes this campsite very enjoyable.
