Gopher Tortoise Loop Trail is a very easy hike in Reed Bingham State Park near Albany, Georgia. This trail is kid friendly and dog friendly, so long as your furry kids are on leash. The park says "this one-mile-long bike trail covers an area that was once cultivated and features a variety of scrub oaks, longleaf pine, saw palmetto and wiregrass. You'll also see large live oaks and wax myrtle. This section is also part of our Gopher Tortoise Management Area and the tortoises are commonly seen here." During the winter months thousands of “buzzards,” both black vultures and turkey vultures, roost in the trees and soar in skies above the park. There is camping available in Reed Bingham State Park.
