Things To Do

Enjoy awesome views during the fall on Choccolocco Ridge. About half the area is off limits with signs posted warning of old bomb remnants. But there still alot to explore! You will also find a great waterfall just down the road on Baines Gap Road.

If you love overlooks you can't go wrong during late fall and winter months. Moorman's overlook is great overlook anytime and has a gravel road that is pretty steep! I used to take in a v6 alero and it was very bumpy but worth the drive.
Frog Pond Overlook is just a short drive and worth the trip. Be sure to wear some mosquito repellant they are huge and many of them.
