ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

I checked the recommended reading list but instead, found on Amazon a most fascinating book "Untamed" The wildest woman in America & the fight for Cumberland Island by Will Harlan. I can't wait to get there this June 2015.

I am thinking about signing up for this program in January. I will be arriving by car. My question: Where do I leave my car while I am on Cumberland?

2 fun ladies will be driving from Savannah....anyone else not flying to JAX March 2?

Teri Davies Feb 03, 2013 at 08:02 AM

Interested in riding together from JAX to and from Amelia Island Hampton Inn & Suites? We can reserve either a shuttle or a van. I am confused about the pricing, but it seems either is less expensive if there is a group of people. My friend and I make two. Any other takers? Teri
Mari Parratt Feb 15, 2014 at 11:58 AM

I"m confused also about the van. My husband & myself arrive @ JAX @ 2:45 pm. If that fits your time we'd love to ride with you. Thanks,
Mari Parratt Feb 17, 2014 at 09:58 PM

Any one with suggestions on best way to get to the Hamptons - 3/2/14? Thanks, Mari P
