  • We loved it. We spent several hours meandering around and didn’t get to go everywhere. Well maintained, well marked, nice trail maps, and convent toilet locations. Also, the people who own the area provide water throughout locations on the trails in 5 gallon coolers so a hiker can refill water bottles. It was hot and we got to stay out longer because they provided water. Will be back and will bring more friends.
  • Super awesome little gem if you're ever in alabama. They have restrooms and water stations set up throughout the trail, and the view is amazing! Will definitely be going back :)
