Alabama's Hunting & Fishing Trail for People with Physical Disabilities is a network of public and private recreational sites throughout the state. These facilities provide accessible fishing, shooting, and hunting opportunities for individuals with physical disabilities.

Trail sponsors encourage individuals, families, friends, etc. to vidit these sites and experience the joys of recreational fishing, hunting, and shooting. The fishing and shooting sites do not require registration, however, all users of these facilities must be properly licensed and abide by regulations governing these sites.

The hunting trail sites are provided by various public and/or private entities and managed by DCNR. To utilize the hunting trail sites there is a required application process.
