Wild Wednesday Hike to Payne Creek Canyon

July 31, 2019 @ 9:30 am


Come Adventure with Wild South!

Wednesday, July 31st


 Hike to Payne Creek Canyon

Payne Creek is a tributary of the Sipsey Fork of the Black Warrior River. Our hike will start at the Payne Creek Demonstration Area on Highway 33, just north of the Sipsey Fork bridge. The half-mile descent into the canyon will take us on a trail through mixed upland hardwood forest, lush ferns, and native plants. Once in the canyon, Payne Creek flows through a forest dominated by Eastern Hemlocks, hardwoods, and pines, with a large rock shelter and (sometimes) a waterfall!

Leader: Janice Barrett

Distance: Approx. 2 miles roundtrip
