In summer 2014, Exploring Alabama was started with a simple mission: highlight interesting and education places throughout Alabama. 9 years later, we continue to introduce people to new parks, trails, and attractions. We have grown to include 64 trails and 31 places and plan to continue adding new location in the coming years. Our focus remains oriented to outdoor venues as we want to encourage people to explore the great outdoors; where they can experience nature and take in its beauty.

Exploring Alabama is an independently operated site. Though we provide links to publicly and privately operated parks and attractions, we are not affiliated with any of these organizations. We encourage you to check out their websites and to learn more about what each destination has to offer.

Our site will remain free with no barricade to information. And we encourage your involvement with our efforts. If you have places or hikes you’ve enjoyed, please share them with us. You can help us grow. We welcome donations to help pay for our site and travels. If interested, please contact us.

Thank you for visiting Exploring Alabama and we encourage you to get out and enjoy the great outdoors!
