Central Loop

Northern Cardinal Description: Hurricane Creek Park is known for its scenic deep canyon, which is heavily wooded with mature hardwoods. The park offers a number of trails, leading birders through a landscape crisscrossed by streams and waterfalls. As you walk the trails, listen for Red-eyed Vireos and Great Crested Flycatchers among the numerous Northern Cardinals and Carolina Chickadees. Peer through the canopy for Redtailed and Red-shouldered hawks soaring high overhead. During the winter, Whitebreasted Nuthatches and Yellow-rumped Warblers join the cardinals and chickadees, while almost anything could appear during migration.

Directions: From the intersection of I-65 and US Hwy 31 near Lacon, AL, take Exit 318 and drive south on Hwy 31 South for 2.2 miles to the park on the left.  Get map from MapQuest (new window will open)
