The Globe Creek trail begins at the French’s Lake Coastal Access Kiosk, located on the Forever Wild Land Trust’s Clearwater Tract. Get to French’s Lake Coastal Access Kiosk, by traveling north of Stockton, AL on Highway 225/59. Follow signs to the Upper Delta Wildlife Management Area and then follow signs to French’s Lake Coastal Access Kiosk. The map shows French’s Lake as a small slough-like area on Major’s Creek, prior to the creek splitting into several channels. Globe Creek is one of these channels. The multiple channels can be confusing, so it is important for users to closely follow the marked route. Globe Creek route follows a generally southernly direction into Big Beaver Creek, then into Tensaw Lake and ends at Hubbard’s Landing.
