FULL Caney Creek Falls Hike

September 2, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm

You MUST email Kim (kim@wildsouth.org) to get on the list for this hike. No exceptions! Thanks!

Hike leader: Kim Waites

Distance: 2.5 miles roundtrip

Caney Creek Falls is a year-round waterfall that falls into the perfect swimming hole! Hikers will explore the surrounding sandstone bluffs and boulders for the creatures and plants that live there. A short walk downstream takes us away from the falls on the rocky, forested creekbank and into the shallow water, turning over rocks to look for crayfish and salamanders!

The approach to the canyon waterfall is a 1-mile hike on an old road, gradually downhill most of the way, until the end where the trail descends more steeply then is briefly precipitous. Hiking out, it’s a steep climb up for the first quarter mile or so.

For All Hikes:

After signing up, meet at the Wild South office at 552 Lawrence Street, Moulton, Alabama at 9:30 a.m.

Wear clothes comfortable for summer hiking that can get wet, including shoes! If tick and insect repellent is used, spray only at the trailhead (not before getting into car) and as sparingly as possible.

Bring a backpack lunch, snacks and plenty of drinking water.

DOGS ON WILD SOUTH HIKES: Well-behaved, socialized, non-threatening dogs may come on Wild South hikes but must be leashed at all times.

Wild South hikes are free but donations to support Wild South’s Hikes Program are gratefully accepted! There will be a donation bucket on the picnic table at the Wild South office.
