Guided Hike to Fall Creek Falls
June 29, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm
Celebrate summer by joining us for a guided hike to Fall Creek Falls!
Saturday, June 29th
Where to Meet: The Wild South Office (552 Lawrence St., Moulton, AL) at 9:30 AM.
Hike Details: The hike will begin on Trail 200 in the Sipsey Recreation Area parking lot on Cranal Rd. (County Rd. 6). After a half mile, we will cross Borden Creek to access Trail 209, then walk another half mile to reach the waterfall! During the return hike, we will take some time to play in the water and explore the confluence of Sipsey Fork and Borden Creek, ending back at the Sipsey Recreation Area.
Level of Difficulty: This hike will be approximately 3 miles, and is rated as moderately challenging with little elevation change. All ages are welcome. This rough trail is well-maintained but rocky and rooty underfoot. Be prepared for minor stream crossings.
What to Bring: A backpack with lunch, snacks, and plenty of drinking water. Wear sturdy footwear with good traction. Dress for the weather.
Tick Protection: For protection against ticks, we recommend Permanone or Sawyers. These are effective permethrin products to be sprayed on clothing only (NOT on skin), and must be left to dry for 4 hours prior to wearing. These products don’t have a strong odor (like other sprays), allowing you to enjoy all the good smells of the forest.
Cost: Wild South hikes are always free of charge, but your donation in the bucket on the picnic table will be gratefully received! We offer these hikes in the Bankhead National Forest the first and last Saturday of each month, as part of our Alabama Outreach & Education Program.
RSVP Required: Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (256) 974-6166. Please include your phone number when signing up. (If you prefer, you may meet the group at the trailhead at the Sipsey Recreation Area – please let us know when signing up.)
