THE SIPSEY SULLIVAN TRACT addition in Tuscaloosa County consists of approximately 2,980 acres. This tract, as well as the Sipsey-Robertson Tract and the Sipsey-Randolph Tract (all adjoining), is located in the Sipsey River watershed and upper Tombigbee River basin. This area is located within the Eastern Gulf Coastal Plain physiographic section and Fall Line Hills district. This district forms the boundary or transition from the more rugged sections to the north and the sections with less relief to the south. It is typically mostly forested with oak, hickory and pine. These Sipsey River tracts are vegetated with oak, hickory and pine in the elevated portions, with tupelo-cypress stands interspersed in the many flooded backwater sloughs and beaver ponds. These properties provide great opportunities for canoeing, fishing, bird watching, nature study and exploring during most of the year. An extensive trail system allows good access for hiking, bicycling and horseback riding. Primitive camping is allowed year round in designated camping area only. All camping is first come first served on fees. Four wheelers are allowed during hunting season, only as a means of facilitating hunting activity.
