After two days of paddling, we needed to give our arms a rest. We cast about for an interesting hike. Just a few miles south of Folkston, Georgia is the Ralph E. Simmons Memorial State Forest. This Florida State Park is located along the Georgia/Florida border along the banks of the St. Mary's River. It promised 12 different forest communities. There are three different loops that provided over 10 miles of hiking. We set our sights on the 7 mile White Sand Landing Loop.
After a leisurely morning, we arrived at the trailhead around noon.
