Located near historic Savannah, this park borders Skidaway narrows, a part of Georgias intracoastal waterway. The park provides camping and picnicking surrounded by Spanish moss-draped live oaks. Trails wind through maritime forest and over salt marsh allowing visitors to watch for deer, fiddler crabs, raccoon, egrets and migrating birds such as colorful painted buntings. An observation tower provides another chance to watch for wildlife on this barrier island. A giant ground sloth replica, birding station, reptile room, and natural and cultural exhibits are featured in the interpretive center.

comfortable walking trail with interesting views and info along the way. will be back.

This trail is really beautiful, definitely my new favorite spot in the low country. I would LOVE to see a clean up effort because there is quite a bit of debris and trash that is littering the shore line. Better trail markers would be helpful but overall, this trail is a treasure.

Trails are good. Saw some wildlife, but also ran across more than a little trash, from inconsiderate people.

Great hike. Be prepared to tread through some small shallow water areas at high tide.

We enjoyed this hike! It's not well marked (not marked at all, really), and we missed a couple miles of it, but we saw lots of wildlife in the 3.5 miles we walked. Within the first 5 minutes, there's a swampy area on the left side of the trail, and we spotted a baby alligator, maybe 18 inches long. First alligator I've seen in GA since moving here two years ago! We saw tons of bird species, a decent-sized deer, and lots of lizards. Will definitely walk this trail again soon!

For when you're tying to get a "woods" fix in coastal GA.

Full of mosquitos. Bridge to the lookout was closed. Nothing to write home about.

This should be rated as easy. A lot of bugs of course.

Great trail with great views

Beautiful photo opportunities! The Skidaway trails truly show the beauty that coastal Georgia has to offer. The trails are pretty easy. Wooden boardwalks cover parts of the marshes. A small part of the trail is closed off from the hurricane. The up rooted trees just adds to the beauty of it all. Picnic areas, clean restrooms, dog friendly! $5 parking fee.

Easy hike and temps good at this time of year. Lots of people with dogs. You can see evidence of Hurricane Matthew with many trees down. Can't walk out to Observation Tower currently.

Very good trail to run on, when you can actually find it! At the beginning, the trail is very good but not marked at all. You definitely need to follow the map. Once you cross the road, the trail doesn't really exist anymore because of downed trees and probably floods and hurricanes. I followed the powerlines back to the road and was able to get back onto the trail.

This trail is a nice little walk. It's not long, but a great trail to bring your dog for a short walk. There are places to stop off and sit to enjoy the views. Wasn't able to go on the Big Ferry Trail Loop, which was under maintenance. The other 2 are nice.

Nice walk. Some good marsh views but mostly back in the trees.

Very pretty trail system with views of surrounding marsh, oaks, and Spanish moss. If you're biking, know that not all trails allow bikes - not sure why.

Beautiful scenery, great workout. Trail is moderte to advanced skill level riders on the waterside trail. the trail more inland it's easier for beginners.

This is a trail I walk regularly with my 5 year old son and dogs. It is very well maintained, the scenery is absolutely beautiful. There are many places to stop and rest comfortably if need be. I do suggest you bring some bug spray and a camera. :)
