With cooler weather and sunny days, fall is the perfect opportunity to explore some of Savannah’s best hiking destinations.
Sandpiper, Avian & Big Ferry Trails Loop
This scenic trail system offers just over 4 miles of trails with barely any elevation changes. Rated as an easy hike on AllTrails, this loop takes you through weeping willow tunnels, boardwalks, dirt paths, and plenty of native Georgia foliage. Plus, you can even bring your pup along for the adventure. However you definitely won’t want to forget your bug spray on this hike!
Moon River at Downing Piers
Make your way through this 7.8-mile loop on a cool fall afternoon as you check out the nearby marshes, waterways, and lush vegetation. This beautiful hiking area spans the Northeast edge of Skidaway Island along the Wilmington River. Get some exercise during dawn or dusk and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to catch an up-close-and-personal view of the local flora and fauna.
Wormsloe Historic Site Trail
Wormsloe Historic Site Trail is one of the easiest and quickest hikes on this list. As a 3.1-mile loop, this close-in trail is situated between the Moon River District and the Skidaway River just on the edge of Savannah’s southeast side. From tree-tunneled trails to historic ruins and endless sightseeing opportunities, this trail is an absolute must-see during the fall season.
