Hiked the south loop end of the Conecuh Trail from Open Pond Campground, and took the 1 mile spur trail to the Blue Spring. The map on AllTrails which shows the south end of Conecuh Trail paralelling a road at the Eastern Extent is not correct. If one does not want to go see the Blue Spring, they can take the road on that section to complete the loop as shown on AllTrails Map. However, the hiking in this area is a bit boring if you will and the Blue Spring is really the highlight of the Eastern portion of the Conecuh Trail. The short back and out trail shown just to the northeast of the southern loop of Conecuh Trail on All Trails map is the Blue Spring trail from the Forest Service Road, and the south end of the CT goes there right after you cross the final road, 373 I think it is, just keep going. The blue spring was pretty cool, and a good place for a swim and soak. Crystal clear water with a blue tint on the deepest part. The rest of the trail was OK, it passes by Buck Lake and Alligator Hole on the West end of the south loop. Check the calendar at the information kiosks at Open Pond Rec Area to see hunting days. Don't go in the back country to hike on hunting days!

Nice easy well marked trail. Used this to test out new backpacking gear. The trail is easy to follow and well maintained and seemingly seldom used. There are several lakes and one spring fed blue pool
Perfect swimming hole.

This is a hiking trail. No bike tracks. I didn't see signs as to not to bike on it, but the grass and thick layer of leaves would make it pretty hard.

Was a pretty fun local trail. Well marked and easy to follow, plenty of off shoots for this more adventurous. Level terrain throughout the majority of the ride.

Excellent beginner trail, smooth well marked trail with mild terrain and elevation yet with beautiful scenery. Some recent controlled butn activity but not much.
