that will stretch from Fort Morgan on Alabama's Gulf Coast to a beautiful bowl canyon on the
Alabama-Tennessee state line called the Walls of Jericho, a trip of over 550-miles.
|What will make this new long path unique is that if you would hike from one end to the other you will see the entire breadth of Alabama's landscapes: pristine white beaches, maritime wetlands and forests, meandering black water rivers, deep canyons, towering waterfalls, fascinating historic sites, and the mountains of the Tennessee Valley.
To make the trail a reality, AHTS partners with many local, state, and federal agencies to help build and maintain trails on their property which we call "dots-on-the-map". While working these trails, the organization keeps in mind that these dots will one day connect together to form the Alabama Trail.
It will take years to complete the project but the good news is that sections of the trail, especially on the Gulf Coast, are open for hiking already or will be usable in a very short time.

The following is a list of sections currently being built or surveyed by AHTS along the Alabama Trail corridor and along with the responsible Chapter. AHTS is looking to establish new chapters along the proposed corridor from Monroeville to Florence so that we can continue our work on the trail.
