Wormsloe Plantation, Isle of Hope, Savannah, GA (Total of 3.3 miles)
Ever watch Forest Gump? Come relive the movie by hiking the same path you see on one of Forrest’s runs! We'll walk, run, hop, or skip in his footsteps through the beautiful live oaks towards the start of the forested area and nature trail. This historic trail is a great display of what is was like when the Georgia Founders settled and built temporary cabins and tabby homes as the colony expanded. Savannah’s oldest tabby ruins and marsh access give a glimpse of life for families who made this new continent their home. It often reminds me of the life our ancestors had when they arrived to live in the New World, with so much excitement and potential as people learned to survive on the lands we now stand upon today.
A comprehensive visitors’ center is on site with informative staff, and time built into our trip to experience the exhibits and view the short interpretive film. Upon leaving, you'll have the option to join me for reserved dining at a local seafood restaurant off the beaten path for most tourists. You don't have to opt-in as the meal isn't included in the trip price, but this adds to the many perfect days I’ve experienced while visiting Wormsloe. I'm excited for you to join me for this beautiful hike, great local food, and introspective reflection on it all with good company!
