|Brierfield Ironworks Historical State Park |
Brierfield Ironworks Historical State Park is an attractive, open park with a friendly staff. The terrain is primarily open and level, with a small wet-weather stream and a covered bridge not far from the park entrance. There are gently rolling hills toward the rear (north) end of the acreage. The forest is mostly mature hardwoods, with scattered pines on the higher elevations. There are multiple “period” buildings dotting the landscape, and several rustic cabins and a group lodge on the north end of the park. The center of the park is dominated by parking areas and picnic pavilions.

|Cahaba River National Wildlife Refuge |
Cahaba River NWR is one of nation's newest National Wildlife Refuges. Established September 25, 2002 for the purpose of protecting and managing a unique section of the Cahaba River and land adjacent to it. Cahaba River NWR is home to five federally listed species including the Cahaba shiner, goldline darter, round rocksnail, and cylindrical lioplax snail.
Most visitors come during the mid-May to mid-June period to see the flowering of the Cahaba Lily (Hymenocallis coronaria). The Refuge contains a vehicle accessible road along the river and a parking area with access to trails and river access.
An annual highlight occurs from mid-May through very early June, when the Cahaba lilies bloom. There is an annual festival in West Blocton on the last Saturday in May in honor of these stunning flowers. The festival includes guided tours to the lily shoals and is well worth your time.
