Lickskillet Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A pleasant walk through the woods and some of the best views of Town Creek and Lake Guntersville are in store along this trail. The route provides a moderate hike for the first half of the trip over a long and often rocky climb up Bailey Ridge. Then the trail joins the easier Seales and Meredith trails to complete the loop.
Lake Guntersville State Park is a favorite with tourists and residents year-round, and this is not surprising. Water-related activities on the 66,470-acre lake are almost endless: swimming, boating, water-skiing, and, of course, great fishing. The park also has an eighteen-hole golf course and pro shop, tennis courts, picnic areas, and campgrounds. The park has 31 miles of trails around the peaks, lake, and rivers.Among the trails is a half-mile nature walk, behind the park lodge, which serves up an overview of the local geology and natural life.Trails within the park are well maintained and clear of downed trees, limbs, and brush. Hikes are easy to moderate in difficulty."
