Bee Branch Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Bee Branch Trail in the Sipsey Wilderness makes for a great overnight trip. The terrain is easy to moderate over dirt and rock trails through a canyon and past several small waterfalls, culminating in the Bee Branch Falls and caves. There is an excellent campsite at the end of the trail, just south of the falls. Trail Surface: Dirt path; rocky through canyon.
The Appalachian Plateau of northwest Alabama bears a close resemblance to the Great Smoky Mountains, with deep canyons and old-growth forest. For thousands of years, the Creek, Cherokee, and Chickasaw Indians hunted and lived here. They
used caves along the riverbanks for shelter and hunted a wide variety of game. Weather and the many rivers and creeks carved out the sandstone canyons, some with walls 300 feet high."
