The Sipsey Wilderness in northwestern Alabama is the third largest Wilderness area east of the Mississippi. The wilderness has an abundance of waterfalls, and the color of the water in the streams is opal blue. Naturally, the Sipsey Wilderness has a good deal of camping, hiking and canoeing options.

Understand[edit]

History[edit]

Landscape[edit]

Sipsey's rugged landscape is what has kept it wild. The wilderness covers land where a low plateau has been carved into a thickly forested maze of canyons and hollows. These canyons and hollows are not that deep, but they are quite steep. When you add this fact to Alabama's heavy rainfall, you get the wilderness's specialty: waterfalls.

Stay safe[edit]

One of Sipsey's biggest draws, its high bluffs, is also one of its biggest dangers. The bluffs are often hidden behind thick brush. Watch where you walk.

Keep in mind that venomous Copperhead snakes are quite common in the Sipsey Wilderness. Just be aware of where you are stepping, and you should not have any problems with them.
