Wild Wednesday Hike on the Sipsey Rec. Area Trail & Sipsey Fork

July 3 @ 9:30 am

 

Come Adventure with Wild South!

Wednesday, July 3rd

 

Hike on the Sipsey Recreation Area Trail & Sipsey Fork

The Sipsey Recreation Area Trail follows the Sipsey Fork downstream on the southern edge of the Sipsey Wilderness. This winding trail curves in and out of coves characterized by waterfalls and old-growth trees. We will be in the water for much of the hike back upstream as we navigate from one sandbar to another (water level permitting), and will end our hike with a scenic lunch at the swimming hole!

Leader: Kim Waites

Distance: 1-2 miles roundtrip

Fee: There is a $3 per car day-use fee
