Hurricane Creek Park is a 67+ acre natural area, nestled in a 500 foot deep canyon in the foothills of the Appalacian Mountains. The park was founded in 1961 by William "Buddy" Rogers. He ran the park as a day-hike/picnic area for forty years. In 2003 he donated his beloved park to the Alabama State Lands Division.
The City of Cullman Parks & Recreation now has the responsibility of operating the property. There is something here for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages. The park features several waterfalls that are rain fed and run about eight months out of the year. There are many unusual rock formations, and beautiful scenic views. We have several miles of established hiking trails. Because these trails are very steep they should be regarded as very strenous. Please be aware of you & your groups physical/health limitations/concerns. It is also advisable to check the weather conditions for warnings &/or advisories especially in the summer.
Be aware of the heat index!
In addition to hiking, visitors can picnic beside the creek under the covered pavillion or at individual tables in the same vicinity.
Rock climbing is also offered to the seasoned climber.
Or you may opt for our "My First TIme Rock Climbing" program which is offered every Saturday morning by reservation. This program is great for birthday parties, family get-togethers, activity dates, etc. Hurricane Creek Park has been added as a stop on the North Alabama Birding Trail and is host to many species of birds.
