Choccolocco Creek

Choccolocco Creek

Mark your calendars for April 28th from 1pm – 5pm, the Choccolocco Creek Watershed Alliance will host a hike through the Choccolocco Creek Watershed. The trek will be lead by Jacksonville State University’s own Francine Hutchinson. She is the Assistant Herbarium Curator as well as a seasoned Ethno-botanist. She will bring a wealth of knowledge with her on our hike. Come prepared to learn some interesting things about the forest as well as the plant species that have been an important resource for hundreds of years.

Trailhead Location:  Dugger Mountain Rd within the Talladega National Forest.
Directions: From Piedmont, AL head East on Vigo Rd. for approximately 2.5 miles.
                         Turn right onto Hebble Hwy heading South towards Dugger Mountain.
                         Turn left onto Dugger Mountain Rd (also called CR 500), still heading South.
                         Stay on Dugger Mountain Road for approximately 1.5 miles as it bends through the Vigo  community  and enters Talladega National Forest (there will be a sign)
                         Once you enter Talladega National Forest, the trailhead will be another 1.5 miles.
                         The paved road becomes dirt and you will pass a “One Lane Bridge”sign.
                         Continue another 1/4 mile down Dugger Mountain Rd.
                         Look for the Dugger Wilderness sign on the right, at the tree-line.
                         Park along the side of the road.
