South of Moulton in the Bankhead National Forest, the 25,000 acre Sipsey Wilderness Area has plenty of horseback riding on abandoned dirt roads. There are six trailheads.
To reach the best trailhead from Moulton, head south on SR33. At the top of the hill, continue another 5 to 6 miles. Turn right on FS208 for 7 to 8 miles until you see a gate blocking an old forest road.
Overall, Sipsey Wilderness Horse Area is the 6th most popular horse trail of all 10 horseback rides in Alabama.
