Get Outdoors at Buck's Pocket State Park

Buck's Pocket State Park has 20 miles of hiking trails varying from 1/4 mile to 6 miles in length. There are also six miles of horseback trails. These trails offer visitors a perfect opportunity to get better acquainted with the area’s rich woodlands and vistas.

The region around Buck’s Pocket State Park, South Sauty Creek, and Morgan’s Cove provides a number of habitats worthy of exploration. The waters of South Sauty Creek are attractive to numerous migratory waterfowl, as well as Great Blue Herons and Great Egrets. Just downstream from the boat landing at Morgan’s Cove, Bald Eagles are known to nest on the forested slopes above the creek. Buck’s Pocket State Park’s wooded pocket canyon is complete with singing Red-eyed Vireo, Wood Thrush, and Scarlet Tanagers. The park can also host some interesting surprises during migration.


Morgan’s Cove is also part of Buck's Pocket State Park. This secluded cove is the perfect spot to watch Belted Kingfishers diving for their dinner or to launch a canoe and paddle your day away.

Access to Alabama State Parks is available without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sex or disabilities.
