Description

From the parking area, take an easy run down the Chesser Island Boardwalk through the cypress trees draped with Spanish moss. It is easy to see the remnants of previous wildfires, including the most recent fire in 2011, which destroyed most of the boardwalk.

Visitors will witness alligators, a variety of wading birds, and possibly sandhill cranes. All four seasons in the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge are full of variety, and you are sure to see something different each time you come!

Flora & Fauna

Pitcher plants, bladderworts, white water lilies, golden club, swamp iris, and many other plants can be seen along the boardwalk, depending on the time of year. Some visitors have even been lucky enough to see black bear and bobcat using the refuge's most popular trail!
