  • August 30 - September 1 (Saturday - Monday) Hike & Camp the Chinnabee Silent Trail and Paddle the Coosa River

    Come join Campus Recreation and Outdoor Adventures as we hike and camp the Chinnabee Silent Trail and Paddle the Coosa River, August 30 – September 1 (Saturday – Labor Day Monday).  This is one of our favorite trips!

     

    The Chinnabee Silent Trail has the most varied terrain of any trail in Talladega National Forest with waterfalls, swimming holes, wildlife rich woodlands and 1 mile of steep 30 rock climbing degrees.  Paddle three hours on Coosa River, passing Class 1, II, and III rapids over the 6.8 mile run. Although intimidating to look at, most of the rapids are manageable for novice to intermediate paddlers.  The banks are lined with oaks, magnolia, dogwood, azaleas, and interesting rock formations, including dozens of islands for stopping and relaxing in the middle of the river.

     

    Day 1 – Leave Rec Center at 7:00 a.m. and drive five hours – just past Talledega – to Lake Chinnabee.  Hike (with backpacks) for three miles and set up camp in an isolated spot near a series of waterfalls and a great swimming hole around 4 p.m.  We will “chill” in the swimming hole, collect firewood, eat dinner, and share tales around the campfire.

     

    Day 2 – Get up at 7 a.m., break camp, and hike about 1/2 mile to a new camp site (and our van) and set up camp.  We will drive about 4 miles to a mountain top restaurant with spectacular vistas of the National Forest for a late morning buffet breakfast. Then, drive back to camp and without backpacks, hike to Caney Head atop Talladega Mountain (2100 feet above mean sea level) with the last mile presenting an extremely steep, rock-scrambling climb.  Continue to hike if you desire along any of the many Pinhoti Trails.  Return to camp by dinner.

     

    Day 3 – Break camp at 7 a.m. Drive two hours and put in on Coosa around 9 a.m. Paddle 7 miles in 4 hours. Leave for Mobile around 2 p.m., return around 6 p.m.

  • September 6 (Saturday)  Hot Air Ballooning

    Come join Campus Recreation and Outdoor Adventures for a Hot Air Balloon Ride on Saturday, September 6.

     

    We will “fly like an eagle” 1500 feet above the ground and enjoy breathtaking sights of the Eastern Shore of the Bay.  No work involved; just relax and enjoy the majestic views.

     

    Check out Alabama Gulf Coast Hot Air Ballooning for more info on our trip leader.

     

    Due to air patterns, we will be flying in the early morning.  We will depart from Campus Recreation 90 minutes prior to sunrise and arrive at our destination in Magnolia Springs, AL., 30 minutes prior to sunrise.  We will split into 2 groups of three – four (weight maximum of 600 lbs. per flight); each of the two groups will get to fly for 20 to 30 minutes as the other group “gives chase” in a pursuit car.  The balloon will land “where it chooses” and the next group will swap out.  At ballooning’s end, we will go out as a group for brunch and brag about our trip.

     

    Cost (per person): Group of 3 (with a total weight under 600 lbs.): $155 per person. Group of 4 (with a total weight under 600 lbs.): $120 per person. We will supply transportation, you supply yourself.  Brunch is not included.   Children as young as six may fly; HOWEVER, they must not be of the timid nature because the balloon burners do make a somewhat intimidating noise and the height can prove somewhat “challenging” for the vertically challenged.

     

    How to sign-up: Respond to this e-mail with your name, phone number and weight.  We will call you to confirm your place on the trip along with your cost (depending on if we get you in a group of 3 or 4).  We will accept registrants until 3 days prior to trip if space allows.  Fee is non-refundable within 3 days of trip UNLESS we can replace you or trip is canceled.

  • October 18-19 (Saturday & Sunday) Paddle & Camp the Sipsey River

    The Sipsey – the only National Wild and Scenic river in the state - is the epitome of wilderness paddling. High cliffs rise steeply – up to 300 feet - from the carved canyon into the sky, exhibiting rocky grandeur.  The water is crystal clear until it flows into deep pools, where the color turns to a beautiful turquoise. The clarity of the water makes it easy to see a variety of fish, such as largemouth bass and bluegill.  Lush arrays of vegetation and beautiful wildflowers accent the gray canyon walls in the spring and early summer. Huge overhangs and many small caves invite exploration.  After a rain, the sight and sound of waterfalls cascading off the walls and into the river prove that this is still a work in progress.

     

    We will take kayaks, canoes, and our Stand Up paddle board for those wishing to use it.

     

    Day 1 – Leave Rec Center at 7 a.m. and drive 6 hours to Double Springs. Paddle 3-4 miles until late afternoon.  Set up camp in William Bankhead National Forest next to river.  Paddle, fish, and explore for remainder of day.

     

    Day 2 – Paddle 6 -7 miles.  Return to Mobile (around 7:00 p.m.)

     

    Cost:  $60 for students and their family members; $65 staff/faculty/alums and their family members; $70 non-USA. Price includes transportation, canoe/kayak/paddle board, sleeping bag, tent, cooking gear; does not include food.  Payable in full by Thursday, October 16.

     

    How to sign up: Leave a check payable for the full amount payable to “U.S.A.” (sorry, no cash) along with your name and cell phone number at the Front Desk of the Student Recreation Center.  We will call you to confirm your place on the trip along with more information.  We will accept registrants up until pre-trip meeting.  Fees are then non-refundable UNLESS we can replace you with someone on wait list or the trip is canceled.

  • October 25 (Saturday) Oktsoberfest Paddle of the Magnolia River

    This will be a relaxing and inspiring six mile float lasting about 4 hours as we paddle from CR 49 in Baldwin County to and through Weeks Bay.  As part of Oktsoberfest week at USA, this trip will be offered free for USA students.  Enjoy the cruise without the booze!

     

    The first part of this trip is marked by beautiful, ornate houses reflecting old southern style and charm which line the banks of the river.  The middle portion will become a marshy area where we will see egrets and herons perched in trees and wading on the banks. And, we may get lucky; manatees are often spotted in the river.  The final part will be open water paddling along the banks of the beautiful Weeks Bay shoreline and wetlands habitat.  Weeks Bay is fringed with Spartina and Juncus marsh and swamp; it receives salt water from the Gulf and fresh water from Magnolia River, thus making it a diverse and fragile habitat for plants and wildlife.

     

    We will meet at the Campus Recreation Center at 7:30 a.m. and leave at 8:00 a.m.  We will begin our float at about 10 a.m.  We will eat lunch on the river and finish around 1:30 p.m.  We will arrive back on campus around 4:30 p.m.

     

    Cost (per person): FREE for students and $20 for family members, $25 for staff/faculty/alums and their family members, $30 for non-USA. Price includes transportation, canoes and kayaks.  Fee does not include food.

     

    How to sign-up: Leave a check for the full amount payable to “U.S.A.” (sorry, no cash) along with your name and cell phone number at the Front Desk of the Student Recreation Center.  To prevent no-shows, students must leave a $20 check to reserve a spot; this check will be returned IF they attend the paddle.  We will call you to confirm your place on the trip along with more information.   You may sign up until day prior to departure if space allows. Fee is non-refundable within 3 days of trip UNLESS we can replace you with someone on wait list or trip is canceled. Checks will not be deposited until completion of trip; if trip is canceled; checks will be returned.

     

    Trip limit: maximum of 16, minimum of 8.

    Day 2- We will walk the Audubon Bird Sanctuary.  We will hike the trails and bird for 3-4 hours, possibly driving to one or two other “hotspots” to see the birds there.  We will return to camp at 11 a.m. for lunch and to pack up camp.  At 12 p.m. we will go for another round of paddling and viewing the fauna.  We will return to the Rec center by 6 p.m.
