Terrapin Point Trail
Distance - 2.0 mi.
Terrapin Point is known for its remote beauty and incredible viewpoints. A total of 2.0 miles, Terrapin is an absolute must see for any backpacker on the north end and is only 1.5 miles north of Brickhill Campground. Bordering along a bluff on the north portion, the trail runs parallel to the intercostal waterway. With a drop of about 50 feet, this provides hikers with a scenic view from the highest point of elevation on the Island. On a clear day, one can even see the bridge over to Jekyll Island. This north section of Terrapin is also arguably one of the best places to watch the sunset, but make sure you’re prepared for the night hike back to Brickhill Campground afterwards! Accessible via the main road, hiking Terrapin’s loop via the north or south entrance as approaching from either point is equally as beautiful. The southern entrance meanders through more open woods, and about 1.0 mile in to the trail, you will cross a boardwalk over a trickling stream. Be sure to keep an eye out as you look out not the in the marsh in case you catch a glimpse of a feral hog!
