Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Cumberland Island, GA
You have the pleasure of joining us to Cumberland Island, GA for a warm and exciting walk through Cumberland Island. We will be backpacking through Maritime Forests of Live Oak Trees and Spanish Moss, and throwing frisbee the whole way through!
Cumberland Island is on the southern coast of Georgia. This island boasts over 50 miles of hiking trails, as well as many designated backcountry camp sites. The island has several scenic hiking loops that “meander through maritime forests, interior wetlands, historic districts, marsh ecosystems, and beautiful beaches.” Check out the map at:http://www.nps.gov/cuis/upload/IslandMap.pdf.
With over 50 miles to walk around in totally undeveloped backcountry, this trip will center primarily on backpacking, and since we could cover anywhere between 3-15 miles in a day, bring your walking legs. But don’t be fooled, there is plenty to do, from beach soccer to frisbee to slacklining to sleeping on a completely empty beach. It’ll be up to us!
This trip is set up in the purest spirit of adventure, so be prepared to be FLEXIBLE!
We will spend 3 nights and 4 days hiking around Cumberland Island and we will go canoeing in the Okefenokee swamp for an afternoon. We will leave either Friday afternoon March 4 around 4pm or early Saturday, March 5 (7am).
We should be back the next Friday evening. Gonna be a great time to hang out and have fun on some at the beach!
