Hiking Alabama’s Sipsey Wilderness

Alabama has so many beautiful hiking destinations. One of my new favorites is the Sipsey Wilderness in Bankhead National Forest just southwest of Huntsville.

We visited the “land of a thousand waterfalls” (as it’s affectionately known) at the end of October and hiked along Borden Creek. We barely scratched the surface of the 25,000-acre forest, so I can’t wait to go back!

Important note: Photos don’t do this place justice. The rock faces/cliffs were HUGE. Rarely would my camera fit them in its frame. It’s truly one of those places you have to see for yourself!
