    There are several options to make the ride longer or shorter. You can drive your bike to the visitor center in the wildlife refuge and ride 6.5 miles to the lighthouse and then turn around and ride back for a nice 13 mile ride. Starting in the town of St. Marks and taking Newport Road to Highway 98 and then to the lighthouse will make it approximately 30 miles round trip. You can also start from the St. Marks Trailhead and ride it to Highway 267 or 98 to get to the refuge. This ride will be about 55-60 miles round trip. You will definitely want to spend some time at the lighthouse before you turn around.
