During Open Woods Weeks, the public is welcome to drive into the Sipsey River complex along the main gravel road leading from the Jack's Drive parking area to the south gate. The main gate will be open from 4 p.m. on Friday and remain open through the following week until 4 p.m. Sunday.
Canoeing, birding, fishing, picnicking and wildlife photography are welcome on these dates. Those wanting to hike, bike and horseback ride during these Open Woods Weeks should be aware that there may be an increase in vehicle traffic.
In the event the Sipsey River is out of its banks and flooding the roads, the dates will be rescheduled.
