PATH completed another 1.5 mile section of the Georgia Coast Rail-Trail in Camden County during February. The recently completed trail segment is an extension of the City of Woodbine trail and boardwalk through downtown Woodbine. The boardwalk overlooks the Satilla River and is the scene of an annual Woodbine Crawfish Festival, celebrating its 27th year. This year’s festival will be held April 27th and 28th and includes live entertainment, a crawfish boil, and a crawfish parade.
The recently completed trail was built by a public-private partnership between PATH, the City of Woodbine, and Camden County.The County prepped the corridor and backfilled the trail after completion. The City obtained the necessary permits and helped the County salvage the ballast along the corridor. PATH provided $195,000 from your donations to install the trail.
The Georgia Coast Rail Trail is being built on a 68 mile-long abandoned rail bed from Riceboro to Kingsland just a few miles from the coast.
Georgia Coast Rail Trail, Inc. a nonprofit group promoting trail development along the corridor, is actively pursuing new segments of the trail to build. There are presently six miles of the Georgia Coast Rail Trail constructed.
