This is a combination trip featuring the best of both worlds in south Alabama — an unbelievably beautiful paddle through the bayous of one of the largest river deltas in the country plus a hike to ancient Indian mounds in the absolute middle of nowhere. The hike itself is reminiscent of hiking in South American rain forests. Trail surface: Canoe float trip; hiking trail is level dirt path. Highlights include southern bayous with Spanish moss–lined banks. Mound Island features abundant wildlife, saw palmetto, greenfly orchid, and cypress trees.

This was one of the best canoe/hiking trips I've been on in a long time! Mound Island has a lot to offer in the way of animals and plants. The trails are clearly defined. The hike is over dirt paths and it is a flat easy hike. We put in at Rice Creek Landing and paddled over to the island, we camped the night, and hiked the trails the next day. Fantastic!
