Visit year round to experience the wonder of Rickwood Caverns Cave Tours.

Sipsey River Kayaking

Located within the William B. Bankhead National Forest, one of Alabama’s four National Forests, covering 181,230 acres, is the Sipsey River. It is home to Alabama’s only National Wild and Scenic River, the Sipsey Fork. 

Devil’s Racetrack

Devil’s Racetrack runs 1.6 miles from the Land Trust Parking on Spragins Hollow Road to a large group of limestone boulders known as the Devil’s Racetrack. This natural open area offers a great view of the hills north of Huntsville.

From start to finish, the trail ascends only 200 feet with the most aggressive climb from 0.6 to 1.10 miles on the trail. This is where you reach the Devil’s Racetrack, a short loop that runs around large grouping of limestone rocks. The loop is just less than 0.5 miles long and puts you back to the trail.
