Laura Walker State Park road + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
This road runs through Laura Walker state park, just south of Waycross, GA. It can be found between US-1 and GA-520. On US-1 it's located across the street from the Okefenokee Swamp Park entrance (Okefenokee is on the West side of the road, LW on the East).
The road winds through the park, so it's less scenery and more picnic tables and a golf course. About half the road wraps around the lake, but again, nothing special.
This road really has it all. There's a couple good, long sweepers, a few fast corners, a couple switchbacks, and even a 70mph-ish chicane. The pavement is in great condition, and while not new, is not heavily trafficked so there are zero potholes, cracks, tar snakes, etc.
There are only a couple parts where you have to worry about side-streets, but that's around the slow switchbacks, so there shouldn't be much to worry about.
You're inside a state park, so figure the usual things: hiking trails, lake to swim in, refreshment shop, and picnic tables. I personally didn't stop, so I don't know if this place has anything special in it.
This road isn't just good for flatland Georgia, it's a good road in and of itself. It may be short, but I'll definitely be hitting it up in the future.
