The Travis Bridge provides access to the Sepulga River Canoe Trail, located in Brooklyn, Alabama. The trail is popular for canoeing and kayaking, and offers scenic views of the river and surrounding wilderness. The bridge provides a convenient entry point for visitors to begin their journey on the trail.
This site is the northernmost put-in for the 29-mile-long Sepulga River Canoe Trail and the starting point for an 8-mile paddle down the Sepulga River to Staples Bridge on US Highway 84 (PWBT Site 16). Under normal conditions, this paddle is classified as “novice” with only one short stretch of class 1 whitewater. However, heavy rain upstream can make the trip more difficult. The steep limestone stream banks are covered with hardwoods and pines and this paddle provides an excellent opportunity for birders to get away from the noise of civilization and just enjoy the birds. A small colony of Barn Swallows nests beneath Travis Bridge and White-eyed Vireos and Indigo Buntings are common. Watch for Mississippi Kites performing their acrobatics just above the tree tops.
