Sprewell Bluff Wildlife Management Area Trails Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The day-use area of the Sprewell Bluff Wildlife Management Area (WMA) was formerly a state park, but for budgetary reasons it was transferred in 2012 to the Georgia Wildlife Resource Division for management as part of the WMA. Okefenokee Swamp and National Wildlife Refuge provides interpretive displays describing human and natural history; botanical diversity; and unparalleled wildlife watching, including alligators, other reptiles and amphibians, and birds.
The topography is very flat, with a total elevation change from 120 feet at the swamp edge to 150 feet above sea level on Trail Ridge east of the swamp. Winter is the best time for migratory waterfowl, including sandhill cranes, the beginning of osprey nesting, and many wading birds. Spring is prime season for wildflowers, wading bird rookeries, and great numbers of migrating warblers. Spring is also when alligators begin sunning."
