Went in January and weather was perfect! It could get warm in summer time. Lots of trails and civil war history. Boardwalk on Tensaw River is nice. Staff very nice and give maps of trails.
Around 10 miles of beautiful, well maintained trails. I did about 8 miles and enjoyed them all. Located in Blakeley State park. The staff at the park was very friendly. Great hiking, cool historical sites, and up kept facilities.
We hiked here for the first time last weekend. A excellent hike with wonderful surprises along the way. We are planning a return trip, this time spending the night camping too.
Great hike with some elevation changes, down into the bottoms and back up to the bluff ridge.
Very good hiking, and all the sites to see were very cool. Since it is a state park you have to pay to get in. But other than that very nice.
Very interesting little piece of history that took place in the area. From hiking to just sight seeing it was an overall great experience for a fall afternoon/evening. Would like to go back earlier in the day to see more. The ghost town was by far the coolest thing there. had an actual working well and a tree that people were hung from in the 1800's. The town's old jail is actually still in tact- the genuine concrete that is. highly recommend!
Lovely piece of Alabama history. Only wish there were more plaques describing old Blakeley ghost town
Went in mid January when the weather was in the upper 50's and practically perfect for a hike. One of the best hikes for the area (which unfortunately doesn't have a lot). Good for families. Very easy hike, most people will most likely not strain themselves whatsoever. Best part about this place was the peacefulness and privacy, I don't think we saw more than 15 people in the 5 hours we were there.
Hiked this trail in 90+ degree weather and was glad to find numerous shade covered trails. The park doesn't have maps showing each of the trails (or where they start/end), so it was difficult to figure out which to take. I'm not sure we ended up hiking the full 6 miles we intended, but did a steady 4, for sure. The boardwalks we crossed were repaired and easy to traverse. The dog loved the small creek off the Appalachee trail. This is a great place to explore.
Love this place.
We've done this trail a few times and it's always enjoyable. Lots of history and a variety of scenery. Great for a day hike.
Fun easy hike with a very interesting history. Includes a Civil War battleground and the first courthouse in Baldwin County Alabama. Did it in January, after some wet days the part of the trail that traverses the marsh was pretty much impassable but easy to loop around. Saw white tail deer black snack overall a very fun day hike. Also lots of back country primitive cabins to rent. My guess is summer could get quite "buggy"
Good trails, well marked and pretty much on your own when I went this fall, this was second of two visits, trail out along Confederate lines well marked and easy walk, battlefield area are easy to explore, Union lines are well marked on the way back through the battlefield, but as the lines descend into wetlands, trail stops, with alltrails app it was easy to figure out where to go and to see that wet areas had to be traversed, not bad in the dry fall, could be a lot wetter. fun hike, will go back and explore some more.
