If you haven’t visited Cay Creek Wetlands Interpretive Center yet, you are definitely missing out! This scenic boardwalk stretches 7/10ths of a mile and takes you across several ecosystems. You will see the change in the flora and fauna as you move from freshwater wetlands into the saltwater marsh. It’s a great opportunity for a quick walk in the evening for both you and your pups! It’s open dawn to dusk so make sure you’re checking the sunrise/set.
Our state historic site is one of the most peaceful places in Liberty County! Tucked away in the marsh grass of the coast, this fort sets the perfect scene for a nice long walk. Although dogs aren’t allowed inside the museum, the fort itself and the grounds are welcome to leashed pets. We know Spot will appreciate the view of St. Catherine’s Sound as much as you will!
Historic Baptismal Trail
Our coastal town of Riceboro has beautiful scenery and so many hidden gems, but the Historic Baptismal Trail is one of our favorites! The boardwalk takes you down the path that was used for over 100 years by African American church goers who headed towards the water to be baptized into the Christian faith. This holy trail is perfect for some quiet time with your four-legged friend.
