Blue skies and warm weather entice people to enjoy the great
outdoors. For many people, few things are more enjoyable than soaking up some
rays and breathing in some fresh air.
Moderate temperatures help make many outdoor activities that
much more enjoyable. But even if the weather isn't perfect, individuals can
make the best of the situation and still get out of the house.
As the seasons of warm weather return, those itching to get
outside can explore these entertaining outdoor activities.
Thousands of miles of hiking trails crisscross North
America, but did you know that South Alabama has some of the prettiest terrain
tucked deep into the woods?
Here at Magnolia Branch Wildlife Reserve, you can take in
the sights in a place you wouldn’t have imagined being so beautiful.
Hiking is a great outdoor activity in part because it can be
enjoyed by people of any age and just about any fitness level. When hiking,
it's best to go in pairs. In the event anything occurs, such as an injury, the
other hiker will be able to go for help. Hikers also should alert people at
home as to their itineraries. Remember to pack a portable snack and plenty of
water. And when out in the sun, apply sunscreen and reapply as needed.
Biking is another outdoor activity available at Magnolia
Branch. Once you have learned to ride a
bicycle, that ability stays with you, whether you ride a bike every day or
haven't taken one for a spin in years.
Check that your bike is in good working order or you can
even rent one from us.
Nature takes on an entirely different look when you are atop
a horse. It can be a great workout as well as a recreational retreat. It takes
balance, strong legs and quick reflexes to stay in a saddle.
Those who like to camp with their horses can take advantage
of Magnolia Branch’s stables. Just pull your horse trailer up and unload your
horse into one of the 10 stalls.
These are just a few of the many outdoor activities people
can enjoy at Magnolia Branch. Check out our activities page for more
