Trip to Cumberland Island National Seashore
(August 2006)

MONDAY: Hike from Sea Camp dock to Brickhill Bluff campsite

We were on Cumberland Island (island map - pdf) for three days: August 21-23, 2006.  We arrived on Monday. Most of the island is part of the National Seashore, but there are some private residences also. The east side of the island is next to the Atlantic Ocean, and the west side of the island borders freshwater Cumberland River, Cumberland Sound, and Brickhill River.

We hiked 6 hours that day, with fully loaded backpacks, from Sea Camp (on the south end of the island) to Brickhill Bluff almost at the north end).
We covered the Parallel Trail, Yankee Paradise Trail, Duck House Trail, Lost Trail, and the Main Road to Brickhill Bluff campsite.
