There is a nice pavilion where you can have a picnic. After lunch, you can walk the trails. On the side of one of the trails, there is a small playgorund. The ponds are stocked with fish but they aren't open for fishing except at certain events. There are markers in certain areas to point out various trees and plants. On a hot day, you can wade in some of the streams.
when i was there, it was okay. It seemed like a slave plantation which turned me off. There was this old guy that really got under my skin when i was there. He was telling me I was straying off from the crowd, I wanted to tell him "Hey I'm 38 years old, I'm grown man I can handle myself." He was guiding us through the poison oak, which was foolish. I could do his job better than he could. It was aesthetically pleasing, but very annoying due to the employees there. There was one guy there that had horrible etiquette he would not smile, and he was being disrespectful. The parking was very confusing and clustered, the first half of the road was paved but why not just pave the whole path? I'm never going back. I wouldn't prefer it for anyone else either.
Well, I have been here, but it wasn't the best second time, I was trying to see how I could schedule a day where my family and I could go fishing, when I got to the gates I didn't know where to go. So I traveled down the beaten path with only my common sense to go by, so I kept following the trail to the pavilion to check in(thinking it was the right way ), and an employee chased me down in a Four-wheeler type vehicle, so I let down my window to talk to him, he was being extremely rude and disrespectful and asked questions like "what are you even doing here?" "Where are you going?" "Who are you?(in a very ill-mannered way). By the way I live in Millbrook, and I went to this place when I was younger and I didn't exactly remember the layout. The only way I could respond to his rudeness was to say sorry but I didn't know where to go, and he said "This is private property so the best thing you can do is leave!", I was thinking to myself "Wow, this is how you treat a potential customer?"
What a great find in Central Alabama! This place is off the beaten path and so much fun for outdoor lovers! While only open once a month (3rd weekend of the month), you are given the opportunity to explore the 5 miles of trails, pack a picnic for the covered outdoor pavillion, and view native plants and trees. Truly a wonderful way to find the great outdoors! The trails have various lookout points and placards to review as well. Periodically, they offer special events all in the name of conservation and education for the whole family - make sure to check this place out!
