Cumberland Island Hikes
Day 1 - Ferry Landing to Yankee Paradise
Day 1 starts at Seacamp Landing where the Ferry brings all day and overnight hikers. A class is presented by one of the rangers giving important instructions regarding which camps allow fires and more.  When we called to make reservations, the only camping
spot avalable was Yankee Paradise.  No fires are allowed at Yankee Paradise and potable water is a few hundred yards away.  It was a grueling 8 miles from the landing to Yankee Paradise.

The hiking is both level and smooth. On the way we encounter Stafford Camp that could have made our day 1 hike significantly shorter had it been available....
