Southeastern Outings Dayhike to Barton's Beach and Perry Lakes Park

Hike to a beautiful sand beach and mysterious wooded park in Alabama without traveling to the Gulf

Barton’s Beach.  The area is an extensive sand and gravel beach on the Lower Cahaba River in Perry County near Marion, Alabama.  The river floodplain broadens and creates areas of bottomland hardwood forests, oxbow lakes and extensive sand and gravel bars there.

The Perry Lakes Park and Wildlife Sanctuary contains about 600 acres available to the public for outdoor recreation, education, scientific research, and other activities. Interpretive nature trails (fire lanes and primitive paths)

Additional time info:

Following the dayhike, the very special, optional dinner will begin at 5:00 p.m.  It will be the Low Country Shrimp Boil supper, an annual event in Marion that is perfect following our day of hiking.  The dinner will be held at the historic Marion Female Seminary Building in Marion.   

The function will be very informal.  The menu is boiled shrimp (which you peel & eat), sausage, potatoes, corn on the cob, coleslaw, bread, and your choice of a multitude of homemade desserts.
