Liberty Trail Ramble Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Located halfway between the Colonial ports of Savannah and Darien, the logical name for the town became “Midway,” and its citizens were strong advocates of liberty and self-rule during Georgia’s early history. This historical ride starts at the parking lot of Holton’s Seafood Restaurant. From there you can ride to the historical Midway Church and Museum, go to the Colonial-era state historic site, Fort Morris, or visit the location of the old Colonial town of Sunbury. These sites are all located on the Georgia-designated “Liberty Trail” travel route, and it makes for a great Colonial history ride on your bike. You also get to visit the Halfmoon Marina on the coast to see if the fish are biting!
If you want to tour the old Sunbury cemetery, ride 0.2 mile straight past the two historical markers and follow the signs, but the last short distance is dirt road, so use caution. Many of the graves here have disappeared over time, but it is awe-inspiring to stand in Sunbury and to try to imagine all that occurred here 230-plus years ago. This is an excellent ride that will enlighten you about Georgia’s role in the Revolutionary War."
