The Conecuh National Forest is a good ways from any interstate, you can find it on the map just south of Andalusia. From the north the best way is to get off I65 at Exit 107, go east for a few miles to 55 south, which is a 4 lane road all the way to Andalusia. In Andalusia take 29 south to 137.

The very eastern tip (swamps) has a few spots not cut very well but still very cool. West side is mainly around Open Lake on well manicured grass and well-cut trails. Looking forward to coming back and camping later in the year.

Good trail, very secluded and quiet. The blue springs we got to were very cool, and the hike was quite relaxed. It was nice to feel isolated and we didn’t encounter anyone else during our entire hike.

Easy, well marked trail. Didn’t encounter any people along the trail except at the fishing hole at the trailhead. Doesn’t look like a heavily traveled trail. There were a couple spots that had downed trees that threw me off course for just a minute, but found my mistake quick enough. Beautiful weather and the leaves were changing color too! Even the drive to Conecuh was picturesque as it is cotton picking season and there were fields of ripe cotton and green grassland dotting my drive up 137.

Trail was in good shape. Fall hike. Easy hike with Boy Scouts for first hike with packs. Plenty of wildlife. Cypress trees are big. Cypress knees really cool. Trail tread grassy or sandy for most of the trail. Trail takes you out to beautiful clear creek. Good camping area. Trail is fairly well marked with white diamonds. Temp: mid 60 Sunny

Well marked trail. We had to take a short detour due to a prescribed burn scheduled through Mar 30. No spectacular views, but a quiet place to get away outdoors. We did not see anyone else in the six miles we covered. The shorter loop around Open Pond hugs the road and campground a bit too much for out liking, but the rest of the trail is quite nice.

trails are marked by white markers. nice hike by ponds, I suggest go out to blue point pond, download the alltrail.com app and it helps soo much. no one else was on the trails, I brought my dogs and it didn't take too long to hike. you have to pay 3 bucks for park fee. and 8 bucks for hookup fee, great RV park too. has fire pits and shower center.

Low traffic, well marked. A few spider webs. I brought my dogs and we had a good time. We did go past the end of the trail though because it was marked with the white diamonds (it must continue into another trail). We used to recording tool on the app and were able to find the appropriate turn to get back on to the south loop.

We enjoyed walking the trail. However, we did not feel that it was marked very well. Also there were not maps available. So if it had not been for the app then we would've been on some of the other trails without knowing it. I did not feel that it was as maintained as I would like for it to be. But I do feel it was worth the hike and expect we will go back to do the north loop. And for this time of year there were lots of spiders to get down.

July 15th Pretty easy trail with minimal elevation changes and very well marked. Tough trail under today's conditions: hot, humid, recent rain. The trail overall is in good condition; there are a few spots that had standing water or significant mud due to recent summer storms, and it's a bit overgrown in a few areas (bushes/branches occasionally hanging over the path, 2 or 3 down trees). I'm not a local so I don't know if it's common year round, but there were eye-level spiderwebs across the path about every 10 feet; running was almost impossible. Wear high traction shoes if you're running; lots of areas with loose pine straw. Good views of the lakes for much of the hike and a nice mix of foliage to look at (also provides shade for most of the hike). I'll be back when it's cooler (and not leave the big spray in the car; reapplications were needed).

Possibly the best hike in south Alabama. Consists of two loops, the excellent Blue Spring Loop and the not quite as excellent Open Pond Loop (because part of it stays very close to the campground). Features some nice longleaf pine forest. Scenic Blue Spring lies at the eastern end of the Blue Spring Loop. The eastern part of the Blue Spring Loop is also subject to flooding: check the Blackwater River gauge at Baker, FL to see if it is above flood stage before you hike here.

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!

it was great. the water was pristine, and ice cold. the landscape was beautiful. I took my 5 year old son with me to camp, and it was very kid friendly. The only downside was finding the trail to the spring. it wasn't marked anywhere, and it took about 45 minutes of driving down random trails until we found it. but it was definitely worth the effort. we will definitely be back.

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.
