Alice Richards Botanical Trail
The Alice Richards Botanical Trail is located on St. Simons Island. In my opinion, it is a superlative place for family nature hikes. In addition to the indigenous flora and fauna, the nature trail features an entertaining labyrinth and a children's play area that toddlers tend to adore. It also offers ample shady spots and connects to Frederica Park. The park features a playground, picnic areas and a public restroom. So when you visit the nature trail, I'd suggest making a whole day of it. It is open year round.

Jekyll Island Nature Trails
Overall construction of the new path, which began in early December, is expected to be complete by the start of May, and will be conducted in three phases. When construction of all the pathways is complete, the bikeway will connect several sections of pathway that currently have gaps. The gaps to be filled will safely connect: - (Phase 1) Paths on Ben Fortson Parkway to the three-way stop at the south end of the Historic District - (Phase 2) The north end of the Historic District to Captain Wylly and the Airport - Captain Wylly Road with Old Plantation Road and the Golf Pro Shop
John Gilbert NatureTrail
This beautiful land, named Frederica Marsh, was generously donated to the St. Simons Land Trust in 2000 by Dorothy Gilbert. One of its most treasured features is the magnificent live oak in the center of the property, which Mrs. Gilbert affectionately named “John’s Oak” in honor of her late husband John Gilbert. The John Gilbert Trail is the Land Trust’s first interpretive trail. The trail is a natural gem right in the heart of St. Simons Island. As you pass through the four wooded areas, you see the climax maritime forest transition into the marsh border. From this edge there are several points at which you may rest and view the marsh. Look for interpretive signs to learn about the history of the land, the roles of our native vegetation, and the birds and animals that also visit this land. Please respect the environment by leaving each area you visit as you found it. Whether you spend time relaxing and playing on the beach or hiking a nature trail, 'pack out what you packed in'. Thank you for helping us to keep the Golden Isles beautiful! Open daily, sunrise to sunset.

Southeast Georgia Health System Fitness Trail
The Southeast Georgia Health System Fitness Trail is located adjacent to the St. Simons Immediate Care Center and Gascoigne Bluff on St. Simons Island. The trail opened in the fall of 2006 as part of the Health System’s dedication to promoting health and wellness through regular exercise. The half-mile, paved trail is open daily from daylight to dusk. It gracefully curves and winds its way through a forest of live oaks, cedars, bamboo, and other native plants while benches and fitness stations are strategically placed along the way. The trail is also accessible to anyone who is physically challenged, including those who must use a wheelchair or other mobility device. The entrance of the trail, which is located on Arthur J. Moore Drive, is marked by a wood and synthetic oyster tabby arbor that matches the architectural style used throughout the Golden Isles. The arbor was donated in memory of Dottie Castle, by her daughters, and the Sea Island Garden Group. The trail’s bamboo loop was made possible by a gift from Mike and Lucia Gumaer and is named in their honor.

The Earth Day Nature Trail
The Earth Day Nature Trail is located in Brunswick and its open year round. As you enter the nature trail and cross over the first boardwalk, I'd suggest that you bear to the left and head towards the Osprey Observation platform. In my experience, it is one of the best spots to bird watch. There is an additional view platform on the southern end too. As you cross over the second boardwalk you'll pass the wading pond. Be sure to keep your binoculars handy because wood storks are known to visit the water's edge. Once you cross over, you'll find another looped trail that will take you past popular nesting and feeding sites for the area's birds. There are additional observation areas as well. Admission is gratis.
