Easy trail with a great view of the lake but a crazy amount of bugs.

To many mosquitoes but other than that great trail.

The trail itself is slightly overgrown and faded in some areas but the trees are marked so it’s easy to follow. Bugs are a problem so I’d recommend bringing some insect spray.

Not only are the trails offered at the visitor’s center unremarkable, but they are without a doubt the worst area for bugs I’ve been to in Savannah thus far. Venture further down the highway to a smaller pull-off that offers longer trails with better scenery and less bugs. I can honestly say after visiting most every outdoor area worth going to the last 8 months of living here, the bugs are the worst here. And not just mosquitos but every one imaginable, and that’s with bug spray. Steer clear!

Horse fly’s were horrendous... even with bug spray on

Pond with all the water lily is very pretty. Trail is well marked and maintained.

Scenic and great terrain.

We walked the Little Back River Trail today- a nice nature trail and was very pretty, easy to walk, lots of wildlife. In the low country gators are to be expected BUT I didn’t really see any warning signs of the heavy gator population. They are EVERYWHERE. I lost count but I spotted around 20. The trail becomes very grassy and a bit overgrown and we saw a gator on the actual trail. It was very scary! So again, yes, this is a great nature trail but BE CAUTIOUS.

great trail!!! lots of bugs bit veet beautiful

Beautiful hike, we went from Kingfisher Pond and picked up the Tupelo Trail, winds through a muddy swamp and blazes can hard to spot. Then runs along an embankment through a lovely swampy area- no bugs today, lots of scuttling fiddler crabs, swamp iris just starting to bloom. Headed back after some of the grassy road. Flat, lots of roots, pretty muddy in spots but fascinating.

Quiet, peaceful. Nice trail for migratory birding. Flat terrain, easy to walk. No shade. Trail map has different mileage than I recorded. Trail markers nonexistent.

Nice trail just outside of Savannah. Saw a few alligators sunning themselves, and an anhinga drying out it’s wings. Must return later for the swamp iris blooming season.

Easy hiking. Saw lots of alligators, red wing blackbirds, herons, hawks, kingfishers, and even an armadillo. The grassy part of the trail tended to get boring as it is flat and straight for miles, but it was the best place to see wildlife. Once you get into the trees and swamp area the actual hiking gets a little more interesting.

About 2/3 of this trail is a grassy road with lots of birds, butterflies, and wildflowers. The last 1/3 is through a swamp. Make sure to pack sunscreen for the first part, and bug spray for the second. Unfortunately, I was unable to make it all the way to Kingfisher pond due to lots of downed trees. The last part of the trail could use some maintenance. Saw lots of redwing blackbirds, herons, and a raccoon!
