Talladega National Forest is a grand testament to the resilience of nature. When the federal government purchased the land in the 1930s, it had been turned into a wasteland by years of unsustainable logging. Now the national forest hosts nearly 400,000 acres of pine forest that’s been untouched for 80+ years. It has some of the state’s best hiking, and visitors can look for a diverse array of animals, including black bears, deer, coyotes, and foxes.
