Woodbine Section
2.75 miles, paved. Runs through Woodbine with scenic areas along the Satilla River, past parks and woodlands. Also known as the Woodbine Riverwalk (or Woodbine Recreational Trail), this pre-existing trail has been incorporated into the Georgia Coast Rail-Trail.
Kudos to the city leaders for being ahead of the curve - when the railroad closed down in 1990 they bought the right of way through town.

Jekyll Island: The whole island is bikeable for visiting historic sites and enjoying scenic waterviews. Once a winter retreat for the wealthy, the island is now governed by the Jekyll Island Authority - by law, 65% of the island including parks and picnic areas must remain in a mostly natural state. The central historic district is a designated National Historic Landmark.

Silver Comet Trail: The Silver Comet Trail runs 61.5 miles from Smyrna, GA, west to the Alabama State Line where it links to the Chief Ladiga Trail. Built on the bed of the old Seaboard Air Line and named after the luxury Silver Comet passenger train, the trail goes over trestles and through a railroad tunnel evoking the railroading past. Amenities abound along the length of the trail.
