King’s Bottom Trail
Distance - 1.4 mi.
Kings Bottom Trail is part of the complex trail system on the western side of the island. It is easily accessible to those staying at Yankee Paradise Campground. Starting at both the Main Road and at Table Point Road, this trail runs east to west and intersects with Ashley Pond and Rayfield Trails. Rayfield Trail crosses Kings Bottom 0.2 miles in and 0.3 miles heading in from the Main Road. Ashley Pond intersects them at 0.8 and 0.9 miles. It’s not a four-way intersection with both Rayfield and Ashley Pond Trail. Each intersection has approximately 0.1 mile between where the trail branches north then branches south. Hikers find themselves immersed in a beautiful and peaceful section of woods, along with passing nearby wetlands which makes ideal hog habitat. This trail is an excellent way for hikers to get from the Main Road to Table Point Trail for outstanding views of the Intracoastal Waterway. Consider spending a day hiking around this complex of trails to experience the wide variety of different terrains and wildlife the island has to offer.
