The Gullah-Geechee community of Armstrong is proud to be on the Florida East Coast Greenway and two other trails. "The local Gullah-Geechee community is promoting cycling trails that run atop old railroad ties laid by Florida East Coast Railroad — giving Armstrong the distinction of being the only community along the Gullah-Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor that is home to 3 bicycle trails. The National Park Service, St. Johns County, Department of Environmental Protection, Rails to Trails Conservancy, Sea Island Loop, and the East Coast Greenways all have trail heads in Armstrong.  Amstrong celebrated the third annual Rails to Trails Festival on December 5 and 6.  Read the full article at the link below.
