Marion, AL 36756 United States

$20.00

One of the very best ways to get a feel for the nature of the Cahaba River is to spend a couple of days and a night camping on the river. The first day is much like the Day Trips described above.

Guided Canoe Trip: Cahaba Lily Tour III–RESERVATIONS FULL!

Cahaba National Widlife Refuge, River Trace
West Blocton, AL 35184 United States

$20 – $40

You will see the beautiful Cahaba lilies first hand in their natural setting. These are rigorous outings that require wading and dragging a canoe over shallow rocky shoals. When very low water conditions occur, we alter the trip so we still see the lilies and enjoy the river, but we avoid a difficult hike down the riverbed. These are our most popular outings, so call soon to reserve your canoe.
