Q:

What are the best photo hikes in the Southeast?

I live in the Southeast and I’m a pretty good amateur photographer. What are some of the most amazing, camera-worthy hikes in my neck of the woods?

A:Cumberland Island National Seashore, Georgia
At seventeen miles long and with an area slightly bigger than Manhattan, Cumberland Island is the largest of Georgia's Sea Islands. It's also the least visited, because it’s not connected to the mainland by a causeway. Only 300 visitors a day are allowed to take the seven-mile ferry ride daily to this spit of land, nearly all of which is owned by the federal government. There are more than 50 miles of trails along beaches and through interior marshes and pine forests, where you can see feral horses roaming through the ruins of plantations. If you’re not capable of taking a slide show’s worth of keepers, you deserve to have your camera taken away
