Trail Information

Skill Level
Much of the trail system is protected from wind and currents, so Janes Island is good for kayakers of all skill levels. When the wind kicks up, the outer trails can be challenging, so keep this in mind when planning your route. Be aware that greenhead flies can be a huge pain during much of the summer. They thrive in the salt marshes and are vicious when they attack in large numbers. Other bugs in the area include horseflies, mosquitoes, and “no-see-ums.”
