This educational and scenic "work in progress" is an 11-mile (22 miles roundtrip) bike and multi-use path from St. Marys Waterfront Park to Crooked River State Park. Comfort stations are located at Sweetwater Park on Pt. Peter Road and at the McIntosh Sugar Mill Tabby Ruins on Ga Spur 40 (across from the Stimson Gate of Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay). Restrooms and a Bike Repair Station are located at the St. Marys Waterfront Park. Paths are still in progress along the route.
Health, recreation, and education make this trail a well-rounded, "something-for-everyone" option for your day out on the trails. Once complete, the Tabby Trail will join four large parks and conservation areas which have hundreds of acres of walking and biking trails. This provides an opportunity for users to experience nature through visits to the Crooked River, the Mcintosh Sugar Mill Tabby Ruins, the St. Marys Rookery Conservation Area, and the ferry launch for the nationally protected Cumberland Island National Seashore. Thanks to a partnership with The Nature Conservancy and their expertise, numerous educational signs will be included along the trail path explaining the importance of environmental sustainability, especially the endangered species endemic to Georgia, such as the Wood Stork, the Pitcher Plant, and others. The Tabby Trail will also be building an accessible "spur" to the St. Marys Rookery Conservation Area. This unique ecological site, that prominenlty features Roseate Spoonbills and Wood Storks, is currenlty under utilized and offeres few opportunities for public viewing. You will also find comfort stations, bike racks and repair stations, a wildlife and bird-watching stand, and educational interpretive signage along the route. Environmental Education is an important goal of the Tabby Trail and it will add to the outdoor recreational experience of the area while focusing on sustainability and environmental stewardship.
