Description

This little-known gem on the Flint River is the perfect location for a daytime getaway. Visitors can cool off in the gently flowing river, skip rocks across the water, picnic on the rivers edge or toss horseshoes in a grassy field. A three-mile trail winds along the bank and up rocky bluffs, offering excellent views from high above the river. Hikers can look for abundant wildflowers and butterflies. Birding enthusiasts might spot tanagers, warblers, osprey and eagles. A boat ramp is available for canoeists, kayakers, rafters and anglers, and canoes may be rented from nearby outfitters. Camping and cottages are available 25 miles west at F.D. Roosevelt State Park in Pine Mountain.

Length: 4.1 mi • Est. 1 h 58 m
This trail can be accessed from the river area parking or the trailhead parking lot to hike back up to the entrance overlook of the park. The dark blue/purple blazes are difficult to see but frequent enough that you can always see one from anywhere on the trail. Much of the trail is along the river but the last 1/2 to 3/4 mile climbs up to near the overlook at the entrance. The trail in this section is narrow, steep, and rocky. Show more
