There are two primary hiking trails on this 6000 acre wildlife management area owned by Alabama Forever Wild. (Click here to visit Forever Wild website.)
The John B. Scott trail is 4.7 miles that weaves along the Tallapoosa River through old growth hardwoods and along several beautiful, flowing creeks.
The Cherokee Bluffs Dam Railroad trail follows the old, historic railroad bed that was built in the early 1920’s and used in the construction of Martin Dam. You can hike 2.7 miles to the Channahatchee Creek or you can follow either the Highline or Lowline railroads and proceed to the highest point in Elmore County: Saddle Rock Mountain.
