Comments: This beautiful and peaceful Alabama State Park walk is in wooded areas of the park, near a lake, and some on unpaved roads and trails but most is on the paved part of the Back Country Trail. This is a wonderful place to spend some time and enjoy Volksmarching. It is recommended you carry water with you. Restrooms and water are available at the start/finish and over half-way through the walk. Trail is mostly flat and rated 1B.
