DO IT: Hiking - Big Creek Nature Trail – Laura Walker State Park

Big Creek Nature Trail – Laura Walker State Park - Laura S. Walker State Park

This trailhead begins just outside the park office, across Hwy 177. The Interpretive panel marks the start of the trail, where you can learn more about the local ecosystem of the swamp. If you head left (north), you can take the entire Big Creek Nature Trail loop or connect with the Lake Trail after 0.2 miles. To access the Lake Trail (Green trail), once you come to the dirt road look to the other side of Hwy 177 and you will see a chain-link gate. The trail continues to the right of that gate.

The Big Creek Nature Trail is an easy to moderate 2.5 mile round trip hike. On the southern end you will find an elevated boardwalk that gives you close look into the black water of the Big Creek, a tributary of the Satilla River.
