THE BEST RUNNING TRAILS NEAR POOLER

|

Savannah is an easy drive from Pooler, and its cobblestone streets, tree-filled parks, and scenic waterfront make it the perfect place to go for a run.

Destinations not to be missed include:

Forsyth Park

Nestled in the historic district, Forsyth Park was named in honor of John Forsyth, the 33rd Governor of Georgia. The park spans thirty acres and is well-known for a fountain built in 1858. It resembles a few other fountains found around the world, and at night, it dazzles visitors with an impressive light show. Runners can explore the park's paths, and the lighted areas are open nightly until 11:00 p.m.

Lake Mayer and Wormsloe Historic Site

The Lake Mayer and Wormsloe Historic Site is where visitors can run around a lake, park, and plantation all in one setting. The property is famed for its breathtaking mile-long avenue lined by towering oaks and Spanish moss. The tabby ruins of Wormsloe are the oldest standing structure in Savannah, and the estate is surrounded by scenic nature trails.

Daffin Park

Covering more than seventy acres, Daffin Park features a two-mile sidewalk perimeter that welcomes hundreds of walkers and runners every week. The park is also ideal for playing soccer, rugby, and football, and it's home to Grayson Stadium.

McQueen's Island Rail Trail

Nestled just outside of Savannah, the McQueen's Island Rail Trail was completed in 1999. Made of crushed limestone, it stretches six miles from the Fort Pulaski National Monument to Tybee Island. The trail was built as a railroad in the late 1800s, and along the way, runners will also take in picturesque views of Cockspur Island across the channel.
