If you enjoy exercising outdoors, then the abundance of trails located throughout Georgia's Golden Isles make walking, hiking or jogging an ideal way to see the area. Many popular attractions are connected by bike paths and are located within short distances of one another. The beaches also provide an ideal place to walk or run, especially during low tides. You can venture deeper into our natural surroundings hiking one of the many nature trails that meander through maritime forest and marshlands.

Many of the nature trails in the area were donated by local organizations to not only provide safe access into the wilderness, but also to educate people about local wildlife, nature, and our unique environment. Remember, when exploring the outdoors, it is recommended that you bring water, sunscreen, and bug spray—especially during the summer months.
