Truck Trail West is a two-way trail located on the south side of the Tennessee River in Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge. The smooth, easy trail follows along the Tennessee River with ample opportunity to stop and take in the views. This popular trail allows fishermen to park their vehicles along the river and dip a line in the water. It is the perfect place to take the family for a quick sunset ride.

Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge is a 35,000-acre wildlife refuge located along the Tennessee River near Decatur, Alabama. The United States Fish and Wildlife Service manages the refuge, established in 1938 to provide a habitat for migrating and wintering birds.

It is essential to stay on the gravel trail or risk losing access to this beautiful area. This trail is closed to motorized vehicles between October 14th and February 10th every winter.
