A unique trail through Georgia’s coastal marshes

The Georgia Coast Rail-Trail will be a 68-mile trail stretching from Kingsland north to Riceboro. Winding through lush green marshes, longleaf pines, and saw grass…crossing 43 beautiful tidal rivers and creeks…no trail in the nation can match it.

Spring 2010 marked the opening of the first 3.5-mile segment of the trail, at White Oak in Camden County, and another 2.75 miles in Woodbine was officially added to the trail in June 2011. The goal of the non-profit Georgia Coast Rail-Trail Inc. is to transform the entire abandoned CSX rail corridor into a 10-foot wide trail for walkers, cyclists, joggers, equestrians, and nature lovers.

The trail is being built on the existing, raised railroad bed, separated from the wetlands and wildlife habitat. Multiple trailheads will provide easy access to this unspoiled ecological system along the Georgia coast.

We hope you’ll take some time to learn more about the trail and consider joining us in this grand adventure.

PLEASE NOTE: While the trail bed exists already, much of it is still in private hands. So unless you see clear signage that a segment is open for public use, please don’t access it yet.
