Explore the most popular paddle sports trails in Alabama with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Great trail! My 7 year old hiked all the way to the waterfall and back. We found lots of cool mushrooms, dragonflies, animal holes, rocks, and leaves. A dragonfly took a ride on my finger, and my daughter found a dead little bumblebee she created a Viking funeral for with a leaf in the creek. We swam and relaxed before hiking back. This trail is a hidden gem.

The trail itself was beautiful especially by the river but there are A LOT of ticks. I highly recommend you and your dogs are treated for ticks before tackling this hike. The trail head actually begins in the state park just beyond the lodge and cabins.

For this area, Tannehill is my #1 choice for mountain biking followed by Hurricane Creek's North and South loops. Wonderful for all skill levels.

Wonderful days with my granddaughters. Be careful navigating Moccasin Gap. We turned over both trips.

Very easy trail, you do have to cross water at the end of the trail. Watch out for snakes.

We took our two dogs out here for the first time last summer. This park is stunning!!! Our girls found the small waterfall and run off and dove straight in. Definitely going to come back out here and rent a cabin

Hiked for about an hour below the park resturant, lt was fun but challenging I. will do it again when better prepared.

This was a great family adventure! We took our 3 year old, 1 year old, and dog and did the short hiking loop near the waterfall. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The kids even challenged themselves to climb the hill on the way back (with us spotting them the whole way.) We can’t wait to go back and camp for a night.

Easy shaded trail along the riverbank.

As another reviewer noted only the first 3 miles of this are on the river. The remaining 6 miles are on dirt roads, gravel roads and bush hogged clear cuts. Unless you just have to complete the trail, do an out and back turning around at about 3 miles under the beautiful junipers.

Lots of trail traffic.

this trail is in various states of order. it is quite versatile, with several options for "bouldering" right next to the water, or taking an exit up to the bluff to walk along backroad 5 or along to ccc road (gillam trail is part of this). though maps show just 3 exits, there are actually 6 well marked exits all the way down to the river mouthing into the other fork near backroad 5 for a much longer and more scenic hike. not well frequented, lost the trail a few times but easy to follow the river and bluff. it seems the trails haven't been tracked for a while but there are some online efforts to update the maps and trail markings. blissful solitude, just me and the birds.

One of my favorite trails in the area. So beautiful and peaceful.

this trail was a relaxing walk with a great view.

kayaked. Was a great time!

Hiked an out and back from Blue Lake Landing on 3/10/18 for 31 miles total. The trail is still muddy in places from recent rains/flooding. Several stream crossings but only one had to be forded. The others had logs across or could be jumped. Blazes on the gravel road north of the Nelson Ditch shelters have been removed. The new trail follows the river north to Gravel Landing; however, the trail is extremely primitive at this point. Though yellow blazes mark the trail, there has been little clearing of the trail in parts that don’t utilize forest roads.

One of the best trails in South Alabama. Yes it is sort of remote to get to, that is its appeal. Well marked, there are several nice new shelters that would make it a nice overnight trip

Just finished hiking the 10.25 loop here today. The trails were very well marked but for longer distances you saw some of the same things. To call this a moderate hike is a bit much if you have done any hiking before. Still a gorgeous place to go and see the waterfall.

Nicely maintained trails with new trails under construction. Perfect for a day hike with the family and dog.

Only about 3 miles of this is in the woods and on the river. The last 5 miles was walking down a gravel road.

Awesome trail blazed by the Alabama Hiking Trail Society. I went a week after a big rain and the river was still high and there were a few flooded areas. Prepare to get your shoes wet and muddy as you hike through a few swampy muddy areas and a couple springs with no bridges. Look out for snakes on this trail as well.

There is no walking trail or camping spots. This is a water trail only.

Beautiful trail, very enjoyable hike. Please note - trail loop as shown on this app is NOT possible with high water. We had to back track, luckily found a bridge to cross, and then crossed again through the creek at a low and slow part, to return to the trailhead. The loop shown assumes you can cross where the falls meet the creek / river. Water too fast for that. Might save a couple new to the area hikers from a similar predicament, with daylight quickly running out. ;)

Had a great time hiking this trail! Beautiful water if you go down the rocks near the waterfall

there is no trail. unless you have a canoe. then it's a river not a trail.

I loved this hike! I wish I lived nearby because I'd come to this park everyday if I could! It's so serene and the trail is beautifully shaded. Great for my pups too!

the directions given led to a gate and fence with "no trespassors" sign.

Numerous trails. Some are 10 mile trails. Beautiful scenery
