    Although not very technical, a real fun trail to ride. I started out by the aquarium. Riding along the Skidaway river was nice. A number of odd small hills about 5-7 feet tall. Fun to go up and over. MOst fun place to ride in the Savannah area (This and Whitemarsh only 2 worth visiting). It a green trail the whole way but the scenery and the twists and such make it a very enjoyable ride. A small set of jumps and such on the Grove Creek side.

    Fun trails for beginners. Expect to see wildlife in the mornings and evenings, I spooked a massive bald eagle last night. Watch for spider webs in the morning during the summer months, duh. This not the State Park trail!

    An update to my previous review. Last time I was here the trail was in rough shape. Since that time the local chapter has really worked hard and have greatly improved this trail system. The trail is clear and well maintained. The obly improvement I would suggest is trail markers. Fun/easy ride

    It's not the state park! Pass that up. Go toward the landings, before the entrance make left, go towards aquarium, KEEP right follow to right! Go to the end, you have to stop. To your right is coast guard to your left is trail. Kinda hidden but well used

    Not overgrown. I'm on it every week. Beginner. It's nice for a work out. No inclines or descents. There are some obstacles here and there. It's fun and a nice ride. I wouldn't consider it a gravel ride at all. It's single track and runs along the water. A loop or a back and forth

    Just rode this on Championship Sunday. Had my two kids and a friends with me. All Hard tails, mostly store bought bikes. Everyone handled it really well. Great scenery. Not the trail in the link, but a good ride.

    The trail you speak of is The Skidaway State park trail and not the Skidaway Priest landing trail. The pictures here are also from the state park and not the Priest Landing trail.

    There's a decent amount of Palmetto roots, but not a challenging trail, very pretty though. If you just want a little morning exercise, something scenic, or are riding a new bike for the first time (like I was), it's worth checking out.

    To clear things up, I live on the island. Let me clear things up. There are 2 different trail areas. One is in the SKIDAWAY ISLAND STATE PARK. This is a short 2 mile loop with no hills or woops. More for a easy bike ride. The second location is the PRIEST LANDING TRAILS. These are not a part of the state park trails. This is a different trail with some technical parts but not too serious. The picture on this segment is from the STATE PARK. but the title (priest landing) is the other trails on the island. Two different places.

    Beautiful! Perfect for a slow loop with beginners or children. So much to see and stop to explore. Perfect for multiple loops if your looking to get in a quick 10miles. I made a day trip from Hilton Head and went to Skidaway in the morning, lunch, then Tom Triplet in the afternoon. Back on the Island before dinner.

    Start to the left when you get to the end of OSCA Rd. You can choose routes within the wooded areas or right along the edge of the tidal marshes. The trail along the edge is tighter and more interesting. Trail is not marked at all but it is hard to get lost. You end up at the oceanographic institute before looping back. The terrain is completely flat and we did this on rigid hardtails so the roots are not too bad.

    It's flat. We went at low tide. Some areas look like they get covered at high tide. It's a good trail for a nice cruise. Stop and look at the liquor still, the civil war history, the Spanish moss. The only trail open to bikes is the big ferry trail. A few areas have a lot of roots. $5 for parking if you drive in.

    Relatively flat with lots of roots. There is a few bridges. The views are worth the short trail rides.

    Great little trial has a lot of potential great turns just keeps you guessing the only down fall it's not marked at all. However the best trail in savannah

    Enjoyed this trail, gets a little technical in places some fun ups and downs and a couple of log piles. Well looked after. As another review said, take all the right turns for the best views and tracks. Not muddy like Tom Triplett.

    Great track for beginners. I stay to the right at every fork to follow the creek and enjoy a great view.

    Fun single tracks in the marshy, and woodland areas of skidaway island. Some fun hills and tight technical areas. Rooty, but not so rooty it ruins your ride. Definitely worth the time to check it out if your in the area.

    This trail is at skidaway state park. Nice nature trail that allows biking. Nothing difficult, but a couple of rooty areas can be troublesome.
