Welcome to the organizations page!
A new addition to the NAH website is the organizations page. This page will list different organizations that support our local hiking trails, such as the Alabama State Park system and The Land Trust of North Alabama. I will be including links to these organizations pages so you may go find out more information about them. It's good to remember that these hiking trails require a lot of time and effort to build and maintain, and that these organizations are instrumental in building and maintaining the trails we enjoy. So it's nice to put these organizations in the spotlight.
National Park Planner Website
A new addition to the website on NAH is a link to the National Park Planner Website. This website is great if you are planning a hike or trip to any national park. The man who created this site has visited over 54 national parks and hiked several hundred miles worth of their hiking trails. Covered on this site is the Russell Cave National Monument located in the Northeastern Alabama town of Bridgeport, the Little River Canyon located in Fort Payne, Alabama, as well as other parks/monuments. The link to visit his page is http://npplan.com/parks-by-state/alabama/ . It is loaded with information. Two of the locations he covers are also covered here on the NAH site: Russell Cave National Monument Trails and The Little River Canyon National Preserve . His site covers additional information such as canoeing/kayaking, biking trails, camping information and more for each national park and monument. He was also kind enough to include a link to the North Alabama Hiking website on his page as well. So, thanks to the National Park Planner site for adding the NAH site and I hope you will visit his!
