Alabama Trails

Alabama, known for its inland waterway system, is located in the southeastern part of the U.S., bordered by Mississippi to the west, Georgia to the east, Tennessee to the north, and both Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to the south.

The Tennessee River cuts through northern Alabama, forming many creeks, streams, rivers, mountains and lakes. Here, you’ll find popular hiking areas in and around Birmingham, the largest city.
