Very Interesting Place For Bamboo This is a nice short hike for the family. The trail is in the city of Prattville, AL. This park was the 1st wilderness park dedicated inside a city limits in the United States. This occurred in 1982. This park is full of very large bamboo. the bamboo is unusual in the area. A majority of the stalks are taller than 65 feet. The loop is less than 1/2 mile so it is a nice hike for the whole family. The trail is paved and there are a few benches to sit down and take a rest. Please take the time to read the info about the park at the trailhead.

I'm a little biased, as I work near here, but it's a beautiful LITTLE trail around a small, stagnant pond. Bamboo is of mythical heights, and in the heat of August it's a cool little spot. Easy walk for the kids.

Sad to see the “pond” was a stagnant, unkept spot of water. Bamboo was down over the trail.

Very short loop around a small pond. But it is in the middle of a bamboo forest!! Very quiet and serene. If in the area it is something to enjoy for about 15 minutes. Not worth going out of way to hike. It is not a hike. It is a stroll around a little pond in the middle of a bamboo forest!

Very short and not worth walking unless your dog needs a short walk in the woods.

Brief walk but a beautiful "must see" if in the area.

You hardly ever see bamboo this big. Short walk is easy for kids and seniors. Great little trail.

Beautiful place to take small children to explore nature. Lots of frogs and a small creek to explore .

This was nice. But the fact that it's only less than a quarter of a mile only killed about 15 minutes at best. It's a cute little place and would recommend it for something different to do in Prattville.
