Wild Wednesday Hike: Sipsey Recreation Trail and Sipsey Fork

July 19 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm

There are only a few spots left on this hike so sign up quick by emailing janice@wildsouth.org

Hike leader: Janice Barrett

Distance: 1.5 mile or less with longer option

$3 per car day use fee

The Sipsey Recreation Area trail follows the Sipsey Fork downstream on the southern edge of the Sipsey Wilderness, curving in and out of coves with waterfalls and old-growth trees. On the way back upstream, this hike will be in the water much of the time, water level permitting, navigating from one sandbar to another. At the end, we will have our lunch at the swimming hole!

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 (except for the Brushy Lake outing where we will picnic close to the parking area), snacks and plenty of drinking water.

No dogs and no smoking on Wild Wednesday hikes, please.

Our Wild Wednesday 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.
