Talladega National Forest Recreation Description. Camping Backpacking with Children
An assortment of recreation experiences are available to the many users who visit the four national forests each year. Whether it's camping, hiking, hunting, horseback riding, Off-Road Vehicle/ATV trails, bird-watching, bicycling riding, swimming, fishing, boating, sightseeing, or just enjoying the beauty of native plants, you'll find all that and more on the National Forests in Alabama.

Developed campgrounds and Recreation areas are scattered throughout the Forests. With few exceptions, dispersed camping is permitted in the general forest area except during the gun deer hunting season. At that time, camping is restricted to designated areas, or by special permit that can be obtained at the district office. Primitive dispersed camping is permitted in the Sipsey Wilderness without special permit requirements for forest users who are not hunting. A limited number of individual camping sites are available for advance reservations at Clear Creek Recreation Area.

Some 319 miles of developed trails are available to hikers through the Pinhioti Trails System in Talladega National Forest, the Conecuh Trail in Conecuh National Forest, Bartram Trail in the Tuskegee National Forest and the newly expanded trail system in the Bankhead National Forest. The largest project, in the Bankhead National Forest, added 82 miles of recreational trails to the 71 miles already in the forest. Included in the most recent trails project are trails for hiking only, some for bicycle riding, horseback riding and one for all-terrain vehicles.

Mountain biking is permitted on all national forest roads, in the general forest area, behind closed gates, on ORV trails, and on horse trails. Mountain bikes are prohibited in the wilderness areas and on all hiking trails.
