4 Scenic Dog-Friendly Trails in Liberty County
We love the transition of seasons here in Liberty County! Change in the weather and scenery are always great, but we also love opportunities to partake in seasonal activities as well! We all love the warmer days of summer that make kayaking and taking a dip in the pool perfect but fall has its own share of fun too!! The cooler temperatures and changing leaves make fall the perfect time of year for long walks, which we know our furry family members will love and appreciate! Of course, safety and sanitation are important on those walks so make sure you keep leashes on and baggies for any potty breaks handy, and we hope you enjoy this incredible list of dog-friendly trails right here in Liberty County!

If you haven’t visited Cay Creek Wetlands Interpretive Center yet, you are definitely missing out!! The center consists of a boardwalk that stretches 7/10ths of a mile and takes you across multiple 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 after work for both you and your pups!
Our state historic site is one of the most peaceful places in Liberty County! Tucked away in the marsh grass of the coast and away from the hustle and bustle of daily life – the fort sets the perfect backdrop for a nice long walk. Although dogs aren’t allowed inside the museum, the fort itself and grounds are welcome to leashed pets. We know Fido will appreciate the view of St. Catherines sound as much as you will!
Historic Baptismal Trail
Our coastal town of Riceboro has a lot of hidden gems and beautiful scenery 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 Americans church goers headed towards the water to be baptized into the Christian faith. The atmosphere of the trail is very peaceful and perfect for some quiet time with a four-legged friend.
Located in the heart of Hinesville, this is a quick trip to nature without leaving the city! Bryant Commons is a 150-acre passive park is perfect for some quality time with furry friends! The amenities of this park include a playground, amphitheater, public restrooms, Veterans Memorial walk, a one-mile walking trail around the 15-acre pond and a dog park! A walk around the pond and some time at the dog park is sure to keep tails wagging!
