Three Days of Biking with a Beautiful View!

The trail system on Jekyll Island is AMAZING!! I biked the entire island and the trail system is safe and leads through the most beautiful scenery. Once on the trail, we went from historical to beautiful water views within minutes. Even the sandy trails were smooth enough to ride on and were safe as well. This is a great way to get the family together for fun.
