Payne Lake Recreation Area Hike with West Alabama Sierra Club
May 5, 2018 @ 12:00 am
Payne Lake Recreation Area Hike and optional campout. Near Tuscaloosa there is a wonderful place to enjoy nature. It is the Oakmulgee Ranger District of the Talladega National Forest. A majority of the types of trees and other plants that grow in most of Alabama can be found there. We should be able to see an active Bald Eagle nest. We will do one to two shorter hikes, separated by a few miles of driving, in order to experience different habitats. For those participants wishing to go on Saturday only, please meet at the old Books-A-Million lot at 9:00 am. Bring water, lunch, sturdy shoes, etc. For those participants wishing to camp the evening of Friday May 4, 2018, please have your gear and reserve a camping site at the Payne Lake Recreation area.
