ALICE RICHARDS BOTANICAL TRAIL

ALICE RICHARDS BOTANICAL TRAIL

Alice Richards Botanical Trail, located in Frederica Park, is where native plant species have been re-introduced to land that was used for timber farming for many years. The trail features a gazebo, children`s area of faerie houses for imaginary play and a labyrinth in the woods for a quiet and contemplative respite. Island garden clubs and other donors partnered with the Land Trust to complete the project.
Location: 2201 Lawrence Road, Frederica Park St. Simons Island, GA 31522
EAST BEACH

EAST BEACH

“East Beach” is the name given to St. Simons Island Beach, the stretch of beach along the Oceanside of St. Simons Island. This is a great location for a range of beach activities, from relaxed shelling to extreme kite boarding, and everything in between. Because of the tides, the sand along East Beach is hard packed and suitable for biking. East Beach is made of smaller sections named after each beach access point. On the northern tip of East Beach, located at the end of Bruce Drive, is Gould’s Inlet, which has very limited parking. Just south of Gould’s Inlet, is the most popular beach location on the island named U.S. Coast Guard Station, after the historic coast guard station that still stands at the entrance today as the present home to the World War II Home Front Museum. Located between the Coast Guard Station and the King and Prince Resort, you will find a more secluded beach access point at Massengale Park. Depending on the tide, you can even access the southern point of East Beach at Pier Village. This is a great location to bike and fish at low tide, providing easy access to the village shops and the Neptune Park Fun Zone.
Location: 4202 1st St St. Simons Island, GA 31522

GOULD`S INLET

GOULD`S INLET

On the northern tip of East Beach, at the end of Bruce Drive, is Gould’s Inlet. Not primarily a beach destination, but rather a bird watching, fishing and ocean observation area. Here you can see the southern end of Sea Island, just across the river inlet, and observe many varieties of coastal birds. During your visit you will most likely encounter fishermen fishing off the boardwalk and along the beach, as well as paddleboarders off the distant sandbars catching some waves. This beach access location offers a shower, water hose, community water bowl for pets, dog bag station, benches and a fishing pier. Please note that there is limited parking.

JOHN GILBERT NATURE TRAIL

JOHN GILBERT NATURE TRAIL

This beautiful land, named Frederica Marsh, was generously donated to the St. Simons Land Trust in 2000 by Dorothy Gilbert.

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. Learn more about the Golden Isles` nature and wildlife.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!
