Lake Nicol - Hiking
Cliffs, trails, and scenic vistas await.
Varies, depending on which trail you choose.
Destination Distance From Downtown
The cliffs offer a slight elevation to overcome, but the real difficulty is the seemingly random assortment of trails leading to, at times, nowhere in particular.
Time To Complete
There are trails spread out all over this lake. One hour seems a reasonable estimate in terms of how long the average hiker would wish to spend.
As with most activities in the state of Alabama, all seasons are doable for those willing to put up with mild temperatures and intermittent rainy seasons. Fall is my favorite because of the scenery, particularly when combined with large bodies of water.
