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

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

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.

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.

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. :)

This trail has the look and feel of being somewhere other-worldly. Spanish moss draping everywhere, large palms and humid air. The walk/hike is easy and the flora and fauna are incredibly lush and diverse. I'm pretty sure the Tree of Life resides here, along the water. It's roots twisting and weaving with lizards scurrying about! A must to experience if you're in the area!!

Great spot I love to come to with my active toddler who can quite easily manage the trail (sandpiper and avian loop trails) walking along side me pointing out all the crabs he can see. First time we went we took a stroller and although the trail is supposed to be accessible we found the roots and sand too much for an every day stroller. Open areas are very harsh in the hot sun.

Easy hiking trails through the woods and along the water at this state park. Recommend hiking during fall or winter when weather is cool- during the summer months the heat and humidity are fierce! Great bird watching in the area. Also nice visitors center.

Five dollar parking. Great hike for the whole family with turn offs if you get tired.

Great trail for jogging or hiking. The trail is marked very well. Be cautious of the tree roots in the trail.
