Piedmont Plateau Birding Trail logoThe Great Horned Owl (Bubo Virginianus) leads the way to untold adventure in East Central Alabama. From the edges of the black belt to the Southern Appalachians, the Piedmont Plateau Birding Trail (PPBT) offers over 3.6 million acres to explore. Alabama is blessed with tremendous natural diversity that spans terrestrial habitats from the gulf beaches to the lower Appalachian Mountains.

Visit the Piedmont Plateau Birding Trail website to begin your journey. From the Appalachian Mountains to the fertile soils of the Alabama Black Belt, the Piedmont Plateau Birding Trail encompasses acres of pristine forests, creeks, streams, rivers, lakes, granite formations and meteor-impact locations.  Although described as a plateau, the relatively flat nature of Alabama’s Piedmont Physiographic Region is only obvious in its southern region. The northern part contains many of the highest peaks in the state, including Mt. Cheaha, the state’s highest point at 2,407 feet, and numerous northeast-trending steep-sided ridges.
