Hays Nature Preserve
The Hays Nature Preserve features over 10 miles of trails and greenways that follow the Flint River and its associated oxbow lakes through low riparian habitat, old fields, and a golf course. This natural area is even an important part of the North Alabama Birding Trail. Horses are welcome on specified horse trails and dogs must be kept on a 6’ or shorter leash at all times.
