The trail was pretty good me and my friends went out there and completed it. Some issues on the trail though lots of the area was damaged and are unsafe to cross I don’t recommenced that you attempt unless you are confident with your balance and bring friends

bridge out

Loved the location. Parked by the bridge to the fort and ran west. There has not been any maintenance done for the first 3 miles. A few bridges out ... had to shimmy across a 30 foot long pole and a board on another bridge. Lots of crabs skittering and birds all around. If you go in the morning bushes and palm trees block the sun keeping it less hot ;).

I loved the walk around this place! My favorite trail is the lighthouse trail, and i am not sure which one that is on here. I did walk the loop back out around the park and into the back half of the parking lot. The bastion was cool, and the lighthouse made my day. always wondered how to get to it as I crossed over that bridge going into Tybee...finally figured it out!

The trails are very good, some are paved, some are dirt and some are grassy levees. All the trails in the scrub and trees may not be marked well but they are easy to follow. Be aware there’s multiple trail intersections and it can be easy to transverse the same loop or you may need to backtrack. Some trails are easier for biking in the morning because of people walking with their dogs. It’s very scenic and you can’t get lost since it’s on an island.

Lived here all along and this was the first time out on the trails at Fort Pulaski . Would be hot in summer so bring extra water and bug spray. Easy trails.

Nice trail , if you dare to go past the erosion you can still pull the full 6 miles , be warned the tides will come in and you will be stuck if you don't want to swim the broken trail .. check tide chart , if you go close to dark bring flashlight and protection, looks like some squatters have been camping there the past couple weeks! Beautiful views!!! And dolphins . Contact me if you wanna trail partner !

The trail is beautiful with many great views, but has been damage because of Hurricane Matthew. I ran this trail in January and at mile 3.45 there is a bridge that can no longer be crossed. I ran the second part of the trail in February and it seemed to damaged in scattered spots. I went back in late March and was difficult to run because there were so many bees. I would recommend to run this trail in the fall and winter. The second part of the trail is way better.

beautiful views, but be aware that parking is limited, and dogs are not permitted on the trail.

It's beautiful, but BRING BUG SPRAY!!! I have never been swarmed by mosquitos so badly in my entire life. Also, even the trails are only open from 9am to 5pm.

Love this walking trail over the Tybee Railway along the south channel of the Savannah River near our home! Birds, fiddler crabs. Perfect for biking, running, or just walking. Observe the tidal changes and walk over the bridge to Ft Pulaski!

Although I'm not for the confederates, I enjoyed Ft. Pulaski! It's full of history and there are some awesome trails to hike! We only did the Fort Perimeter Trail but, now I have to complete all of them!

The fort and everything around it is spectacular I hiked out to see the small lighthouse and the trail was maintained.

Very easy trails and wonderful to take your dogs. water access on several points so dogs can cool off, and Fort itself is very cool and filled with history. Dogs allowed access inside the fort as well.

Yes the tour of the Fort is amazing but I am only writing this review on the trails around the Fort so don't be confused. Granted this is a lovely area along the Savannah River, be warned, there is a reason why malaria caused high death rates here. During the summer months you can not cut through the misquotes with a can of DET bug spray. I always carry this during the summer months and on this occasion I used half a can on my Girlfriend and I. They were still bitting me through my clothing. The only way to escape was to jog back to my truck and randomly spray a cloud of DET behind me. Overall, this is a awesome park with cool trails and buildings all around the property. My only suggestion is go during the winter months when the bugs aren't so bad.

Beautiful area. Explore the inside of the Fort, walk around the perimeter, explore past the fort to the Savannah river and watch massive cargo ships, or view Tybee Island and Cockspur Lighthouse. Great for picnics. Lots of photo ops. Deer can be seen towards evening. Alligators can be seen in the inland canals and ponds. Walking is my prefered method. Biking is not bad, but I don't like riding over grass. Personal choice.

Had a fantastic time, went to the Fort Pulaski site and there was all kinds of history to be viewed. The area has many old trees that proves to be an interesting photographic subject along with the Fort and cannons. Take a detour and go over the the National Guard location, there is a fishing area, and huge ships come sailing by creating some fantastic viewing. You might even see the Coast Guard leave on patrol. Upon entering the park you can see people fishing from the brige as the fish one of the waterways that surround the park, you can see a variety of birds and wildlife around this area.
