Went for a three night four day hike. Beautiful place to visit. Made a big loop hike with a few detours. Bring the camera for sure! The river trails are lovely but are more crowded. The ridge and old road bed trails are peaceful but...More

We hiked at the Sipsey Wilderness. There is an abundance of birds, flora and fauna. The trails were fairly easy, with multiple waterfalls. Parking lot is spacious with a $3 per vehicle charge. Trail is fairly easy to follow, but not marked. We had children...More

Sipsey has a great trail network suitable for backpackers but not so remote that it keeps day hikers and kids out. We were just out over the three day weekend and only came across twenty or so people. Great camping sites, especially 5+ miles in,...More

This is a wonderful place to spend 1-3 days hiking and exploring. Fall-spring are the best, since it can be very overgrown in the summer. Many trails make loops you can do in a long day, or overnight. Largest tree in Alabama is here! It's...More

Another facet of Alabama that is so endearing. This area is relatively unvisited and hopefully will remain so. It is in a National Forest and has some of the best hiking in the state. The rock ledges and outcroppings have to be seen to be...More
