TreeTop Canopy Trail

As of March 2020, the Canopy Tree Top Trail is temporarily closed.

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.
