All Island trails are sand. Weather conditions impact the ease of movement on trails. All-terrain Beach wheelchairs are available upon request at either dock. These non-motorized wheelchairs are designed with balloon tires for ease of movement in sand. Please notify reservation agent when making ferry reservations to insure wheelchair will be available. Currently five wheelchairs are available for use.

In addition, there are All Terrain Trackchairs available through a pilot program between Cumberland Island National Seashore and All Terrain Georgia. Two electric all terrain chairs (ATCs) are an option to individuals with mobility impairments for free, making several island trails accessible to those who otherwise could not explore. Reservations required through All Terrain Georgia at least two weeks prior to island trip. A short video training is required to allow safe operation of the trackchair.
