- This is not full trail. It was tricky to find connecting trail and you see I walked back and forth to find it. There is a loop around open pond and south loop is mixed with this trail. Trail is marked but sometimes they are burned.
First I visited Oak mountain state park in Birmingham, AL and I hiked yellow trail. It was beautiful and calm trail.
Next day I headed up to Conecuh national forest and I hiked and camped 3 days and 2 nights. South loop was almost burned and black color and smell of burnt vegetation was annoying but connecting trail between open pond and blue lake was absolutely beautiful. Apparently they burn part of vegetation to improve quality of soil for next year.
My last destination was national seashores in Florida.
