6. The Fort Toulouse Tract

Date of Purchase: May 27, 1997

Location: Elmore County; Township18N, Range 18E, Sections 27 & 34

Acreage: 254 Acres

The Fort Toulouse Tract was purchased to provide outdoor recreational opportunities for the public, to protect the diverse natural communities of the site, to provide opportunities for ecological education and to protect and interpret significant historic features of the immediate area.

These forests, an open field, streams, ravines and the bottomland hardwoods along the Tallapoosa River all provide diverse natural habitats waiting to be discovered, explored and enjoyed. Access through the tract is by foot or horse back. For the time being, there are no established trails through the woods other than old logging roads. No off-road vehicles, metal detectors, digging tools, camping or hunting are allowed on the property. Camping or lodging, food and refreshments are available either from adjacent Fort Toulouse/Jackson Historic State Park or nearby Wetumpka businesses.

This property is accessible from and through Fort Toulouse which is located just south of Wetumpka, Alabama about 2 miles west of U.S. 231 at the end of Fort Toulouse Road. Visitors to the Forever Wild property should leave their vehicles in the Fort Toulouse parking lot, or other designated areas within the park.
