On a cloudy day, a hike at Skidaway Island State Park [52 Diamond Causeway, Savannah, GA 31411] was a perfect activity. The visitor’s center is great! A replica of a 20-food giant ground sloth mingles with many current examples of wildlife in the area. There are binoculars and reference books, plus restroom facilities here. Don’t forget to check out the turtle enclosure right outside.
From there follow the signs leading out to the boardwalk to begin your hike.
There are six miles of trails to explore, we created a loop to see four of them. Along the way we saw a fantastic flora and fauna.
The trails were ever changing in environment, from forest to field to wetlands, always beautiful and well maintained.
We made it out to the observation and got a gorgeous look over the marsh.
Between the reeds we found tons of tiny periwinkles.
It was a lovely hike, so many great sights, no elevation gain. The park also has a campground, playgrounds, and volleyball court in addition to hiking. Parking is $5, well worth it for the use of the quiet trails.
