You know that old song by TLC called “Waterfalls?” The lyrics in the chorus say “don’t go chasing waterfalls,” but we actually didn’t listen to that, in fact we did the exact opposite. For our season finale of Hiking with Hailey, exploring the waterfalls at DeSoto State Park.
Last week, we introduced you to Gulf State Park, and talked all about the sharks during Shark Week but there’s so much more to this state park than just the gulf. On this week’s episode of Hiking with Hailey, we’re walking along the shoreline of Lake Shelby.
Located on the coast of Alabama, Gulf State Park has two miles of beach – but that isn’t the only attraction you should give your attention to. There’s also hiking, biking, and plenty of other activities that lure visitors back to the shoreline.
Across the state, Alabama has preserved much of its past, and that’s definitely the case at the first national park in Alabama.

For this week’s episode of Hiking with Hailey, we’re taking a trip through time at Horseshoe Bend National Militay Park.
We all know it gets hot in Alabama! This week we cracked the 90′s, and if you’re looking for a place to cool off, why not go underground? For this week’s episode of Hiking with Hailey, we’re exploring Desoto Caverns.
Saturday wrapped up National Fishing and Boating week, as people across the country hit the water hoping to reel in a big catch! Naturally, we wanted to do the same thing, so for this week’s episode of Hiking with Hailey, we checked out the Dallas County Public Fishing Lake.
Here on Hiking with Hailey, we’re no strangers to wildlife – remember last season when we hung out with alligators at Alligator Alley? For this week’s episode, we’re going a little bit more domestic; we’re checking out goats on Goat Island.

When COVID-19 forced college to cancel fall classes last year, best friends Luke Konson and Daniel Balserak decided to do something a little different; so they grabbed their fishing poles, and hit the road.
Last week, we took you to Smith Mountain and showed you the beautiful views of Lake Martin from the fire tower, but did you know it’s actually a part of a bigger trail system? This week we’re learning more about the Cherokee Ridge Alpine Trail System.
Before the creation of the Lake Martin Dam, much of the forest surrounding the lake was cleared away due to poor agricultural efforts, leaving the land a victim of erosion. Step in the Alabama Power Company, who made great strides in saving the shoreline by building the Smith Mountain Fire Tower.
Roland Cooper State Park is tucked away Camden, located in the heart of the Alabama Black Belt in Wilcox County. It’s nestled right along the Alabama River. Instead of walking along the shore-side, we decided to buckle up our life jackets, pack up some canoes, and head out on the water.
If you're looking for a place to cool off this summer, head out to Blue Springs State Park in Clio, Alabama. With water that stays 68 degrees year round. It's a perfect place to escape from the Alabama heat.
