Russell Cave is located in what is now the Northeast corner of Alabama. Archeological findings have shown that the cave has been used as a campsite and a home since around 7000 BC. Here you can see the Visitors Center which also houses several interesting displays about the geology of the cave and the people that have visited the cave and/or called it home; take the boardwalk trail to the cave and see more displays inside the cave; hike the .6 mile nature trail; and aanother 1.2 mile hiking trail. There is also a picnic area.
