Wild Wednesday Hikes to Low Pressure Bridge & Fall Creek Falls

June 26 @ 9:30 am

 

Come Adventure with Wild South!

Wednesday, June 26th

 

Hike #1 to Low Pressure Bridge

THIS HIKE IS FULL!

This spot on the Sipsey Fork is a summertime dream come true! This area is characterized by swimming holes, shallow pools filled with aquatic life, a sandy river bank, a deep and cool sandstone canyon with rock shelters, and a waterfall. It’s a perfect place to play, explore, and learn about the Black Warrior watershed. This part of the Sipsey is home to many species of salamanders, fish, turtles, and lush plant life.

Leader: Janice Barrett

Distance: 2 miles roundtrip

Fee: There is a $3 day-use fee

 

Hike #2 to Fall Creek Falls, Sipsey Wilderness

Fall Creek Falls is located on Trail 209 in the southern part of the Sipsey Wilderness. It sits along a tributary that flows into the Sipsey Fork of the Black Warrior River. 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.

Leader: Kim Waites

Distance: 2 miles roundtrip

Fee: There is a $3 day-use fee
