DO IT: Hiking - Palmetto Trail

Palmetto Trail - Crooked River State Park

This 1.5-mile trail highlights South Georgia’s pine flatwoods, one of the most endangered ecosystems in the world. Its plants and animals are well adapted to periodic fires that maintain a habitat dominated by longleaf pine, saw palmetto, and wiregrass. The open woods are ideal for watching bluebirds, nuthatch, osprey, woodpeckers, warblers, and other birds. Gopher tortoises and endangered indigo snakes depend on this habitat for survival. Look for fruit-bearing plants such as blueberries, muscadine grapes, sparkleberry, wax myrtle, and gull berry.
