A drive through Bankhead forest in the fall is a glorius, heart throbbing, and color infusing passage through nature. You will see leaves that are every color in the rainbow. Don't miss it.

Bankhead is a great place to spend a relaxing afternoon for a walk, or a longer hike, even if you don't have an entire weekend to devote to a larger park. Beautiful and historical, wildlife and trails.

Some very-hard-to-find trails, but a beautiful area. Not as much wildlife as we'd hoped, and given that it was rather dry when we went, not a lot of waterfalls tricking much either.

We had a great two-hour trek through a small muddy cave, and down by the river though, and the drive in/through the forest was gorgeous too. Bring lunch/dinner, as it is quite remote once you get to the smaller roads.
