Terrapin Point Trail

Distance - 2.0 mi.

Terrapin Point is known for its remote beauty and incredible views. An absolute must-see for any backpacker on the north end and only 1.5 miles north of Brickhill Bluff Campground. With a drop of about 50 feet on the north end, this provides hikers with a scenic view of the Intracoastal Waterway 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 undoubtedly one of the best places to watch the sunset, but make sure you’re prepared for the night hike back to Brickhill Campground afterward! The southern entrance meanders through more open woods, and about 1.0 mile into the trail, you will cross a boardwalk over a trickling stream. Be sure to keep an eye out as you look at the marsh in case you glimpse a feral hog!
