Lake Lurleen State Park - Hiking
Premier location for hiking and more in the greater Tuscaloosa area.
This is the total distance of available trail, which circumnavigates the lake.
Destination Distance From Downtown
Long distance routes readily available. However, this location is also approachable for 23hikers of all skill levels.
Time To Complete
Shorter routes are available in the out-and-back fashion, but in order to hike around the entire lake, an entire, exhausting day awaits.
Fall is the ideal season for hiking these trails - the trees are lively, the bugs slightly stymied, and the colors otherworldly.
On Leash Only
Dogs may only be off-leash while in the water, which is acceptable. The on-leash policy seems largely unenforced.
Via actual visit: $4.00/day pass for adults. $1.00/day pass for children and seniors. See website (http://www.stateparks.com/lake_lurleen_state_park_in_alabama.html) for boat rentals and camping fees.
