Mountain Longleaf Wildlife Refuge in Alabama
One of the main purposes for this refuge is to maintain the longleaf pines ecosystem. All it takes is a quick google search for the address, but this is what we followed to get to the area: 407 Bains Gap Rd, Anniston, AL 36201.
This area used to be a former military training area. So STAY on the trails! This is important , watch out for the “Impact Area, Keep out” signs.
We passed some trail heads on the way, but this is the one that we went down. It is a gravel road and it also has more trail heads down as well. It is a dead end, but it was worth it. We saw a Timber Rattle Snake!
Make sure you have a powerful vehicle to get up the gravel hills. We struggled in our Toyota Corolla. Check out the trails and pictures we visited! ***Please be aware of your surrounding at all times. Remember you are the one stepping in to wild animal’s homes. They are just doing what animals do to protect themselves***
Alabama has mountains too. Have you ever been to any of the refuges in Alabama? Have you ever been to Longleaf? If you have I would love to know about your experiences! Tell me more in the comments!
