Plants

Horseshoe Bend is home to a diverse range of flora; thousands of different species are present throughout the park. Our nature trail provides many opportunities to explore the trees, bushes and flowers, which range in diversity from common plants such as black-eyed Susan, river cane, dogwood trees and Goldenrod to rarities such as the yaupon holly. The vast population of trees at Horseshoe Bend provide ample shade, perfect for taking refuge from the Alabama heat to read a book, eat lunch or simply enjoy the scenery.
