Talladega National Forest Guide

Talladega National Forest covers more than 392,567 acres at the southern end of the Appalachian Mountains. This national forest has three distinct areas that do not connect. The Oakmulgee District, headquartered in Brent, Alabama, consists mainly of broad sloping ridges in Hale, Tuscaloosa, Bibb, Perry, Chilton, and Dallas counties. The other two park sections are in Alabama’s northeastern part and feature upland hills and low mountains. The Shoal Creek section is headquartered in Shoal, Alabama, while the Talladega section is at Talladega, Alabama. Talladega National Forest is a great place for fishing, hiking, and nature watching, among other activities.
