The Open Pond Trail, at the southern end of Conecuh National Forest, travels around three ponds—Open Pond, Buck's Pond, and Ditch Pond. The travel is easy, and the scenery is beautiful. The trail begins along the grassy banks of Open Pond, where cypress trees line the banks and an occasional alligator may be seen. As the trail turns into a sandy footpath, it heads into the woods and around Buck's Pond. Finally, it follows a dirt Forest Service road as it rounds Ditch Pond, where herons and egrets abound. Trail Surface: Dirt roads and sand-covered paths; grassy banks along Open Pond.
