Trail Overview

533 - Vaughn Road is a lesser-known road that leads into the Shoal Creek District of the Talladega National Forest and leads to Forest Service RD (FSR) 500, which is the primary road in and out of the Management Area. This gated road is normally an open road and eventually lands in the small town of Heflin, Alabama. This trail will continue into the city, and you will pass driveways of local citizens that own quite a few dogs that could be intimidating for younger children but are of no harm from inside the vehicle. This trail will likely be pine leaf scattered and gravel covered for the majority of it. it is well maintained and very seldom, if ever, washed out or muddy.
