      Bankhead National Forest is located in northwest Alabama, surrounding the cities of Double Springs and Houston, with a total area of 733 square kilometers. Of special note is the Sipsey Wilderness, and its hiking and equestrian trails. Although bicycles are not allowed in the wilderness area, there are two multi-use trails elsewhere in the forest on which bicycles are allowed. Aside from horseback riding, trail running, hiking, and mountain biking, other draws include hunting, fishing, camping, RV sleeping, swimming, boating, a shooting range, and more.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
