Saint Simons Island National Treasure: Alice Richards Botanical Trail

Welcome to the largest island in the Golden Isles, Saint Simons Island, a beautiful island off the coast of Georgia, known as the perfect place to live, work, and play. With so much to see and do, there’s something for everyone. The island not only boasts beautiful beaches, but fine dining, shopping, and numerous attractions. History buffs will enjoy the historical attractions, while nature enthusiasts can soak up breathtaking flora and fauna throughout the island.

Alice Richards Botanical Trail

The Alice Richards Botanical Trail is a nature enthusiast’s paradise. The trail is an attraction within Frederica park, with a distance of 0.8 miles and just a mere 7 feet gain in elevation, it is suitable for all ages. The island lost many of its native plant species due to years of being harvested for timber. The Alice Richards Botanical Trail is a haven for many of these native species which have been reintroduced to the island.

This is a great activity for the entire family. Children will enjoy playing amongst the faerie houses at the trail-head. Couples can enjoy a romantic visit under the gazebo or a stroll through the woods. Do not forget to bring along your furry friends. Alice Richards Botanical trail welcomes responsible pet owners and their four-legged best friends.
