TreeTop Canopy Trail

Take a Walk on the Wild Side at Oxbow Meadows!

Have you ever wanted to walk on the wild side? Now is your chance! Enjoy magnificent views from our TreeTop Canopy Trail, which is suspended 35 feet above the ground, and linked to three platforms surrounding magnificent oaks, hickories, and sweet gum trees. Our 30-minute guided tour offers viewers a chance to observe wetlands, songbirds, vultures, eagles, deer, wood ducks, diverse flora, and other creatures native to our region. In the wintertime, you may even catch a glimpse of Alabama! Binocular rental included.

Currently the Tree Top Trail is closed for repairs.   Scheduled reopening is August 2015.
