We started our hike at the Randolph Trail head. We took 201 to 209 and gheaded down to the River. Crossed the river at a point about two feet deep. Should have carried my shoes and socks instead of letting them get soaked! Then we...More

Friends have been telling me about sipsey for a year or two now and I finally made it out there. I was amazed! The waterfalls, the rock ledges, just awesome. We have done Caney Creek, kenlock, and the picnic trail. All of these were done...More

Went for a three night four day hike. Beautiful place to visit. Made a big loop hike with a few detours. Bring the camera for sure! The river trails are lovely but are more crowded. The ridge and old road bed trails are peaceful but...More

We hiked at the Sipsey Wilderness. There is an abundance of birds, flora and fauna. The trails were fairly easy, with multiple waterfalls. Parking lot is spacious with a $3 per vehicle charge. Trail is fairly easy to follow, but not marked. We had children...More

Sipsey has a great trail network suitable for backpackers but not so remote that it keeps day hikers and kids out. We were just out over the three day weekend and only came across twenty or so people. Great camping sites, especially 5+ miles in,...More

This was a great trip with the family. The first day was near water and easily able to filter water for the adventure. Trail 201 however has no water so pack accordingly. We had a great campsite with plenty of trees to hand out 8...More

Several 2-8 mile point to point trails that can be combined into loops. Bought a trail map in Huntsville and we were easily able to navigate the 209-202-201 for a 16 mile loop from the Sipsey trail head. There was a reasonable bathroom facility at...More
