Visitors can see 50 million-year-old fossilized limestone encrusted with ancient sea shells from the Tallahatta Formation marine ecosystem. Every spring, hikers enjoy a stunning display of one of the state's largest populations of rare trillium, which lie beneath the branches of old-growth beech and magnolia.

A shady walking trail weaves along a ridge through wildflowers, palmettos and moss-draped hardwoods. Two viewing decks offer birdwatchers refuge to see hawks, woodpeckers, herons and flocks of migratory species. Climb the dry bluffs to see sparkleberry, yucca, mountain catchfly and shortleaf pine. Trails are open only to foot traffic. Hunting opportunities include deer, turkey and small game.

Crook's Landing boat ramp provides access to the Flint River.
