As promised in my last article on Biking on Jekyll Island, I am going to write about another biking/hiking trail on Jekyll Island. Although this trail is short, the ride to it and back also provides some enjoyment as you ride around the island.

This trail is found on the northern end of the island, just prior to the Clam Creek area. The trail is very short (less than 100 yards), but leads to a very remote beach area that is surrounded with some interesting scenery containing  downed trees and driftwood. From the beach, the lighthouse on St. Simon’s Island can be seen across the ocean.

Directions:

1. Ride North along BeachView Drive.

2. As the road leaves the homes along the road and begins to curve around there is a small parking area and a dirt trail.

3. Follow this trail to beach. For a map check out: The Jekyll Experience

While on the North end of the island, follow the bike path up to Clam Creek Picnic Area for additional views of St. Simons, Clam Creek, and if you are lucky, a dolphin or two.
