Sipsey Wilderness Trail #207

8:30 a.m. at the Wild South office

Sign up HERE!

Trail 207 runs from north to south and the southern portion follows Braziel, then Borden, Creek.  Since it’s July and it’s Alabama, we are sticking with the creek for this work day!

We will begin at the curved bridge on Borden Creek at the end of Bunyan Hill Road and go onto the trail from there, crossing Borden Creek and working our way up Braziel.  Work will consist of brushing the trail, cutting back encroaching vegetation and removing trail obstructions that do not require use of a crosscut saw.  Crosscut work will be saved for cooler times.

Expect to hike 3 to 4 miles round trip on a rough Wilderness trail while carrying tools and performing trail maintenance.

Be prepared for creek crossings, heat, humidity and ticks.  Wear long pants and closed-toe shoes for protection against sharp tools, briars, bites, stings, etc.  Bring your Epi-Pen if you keep one.

Tools will be provided but bring any favorites you have if you like, such as loppers, pruners, pruning saw, etc.  Hard hats will be provided, but if you have your own, please bring it.

Bring backpack lunch, snacks, LOTS OF DRINKING WATER.

After signing up, meet at the Wild South office within the Warrior Mountains Trading Company at 11312 AL Highway 33, Moulton, AL at 8:30 a.m.  If it’s more convenient, meet us at the starting point on Bunyan Hill Road at 9:00 but be sure to let us know that is your plan.

In addition to support from our individual donors, Wild South’s Helping Hands Program is funded in part by a grant from the General Fund of the Walker Area Community Foundation.
