This trail is only open for three weeks in later winter (2/10-3/01) and two weeks in the fall (10/1-10/14).

Madden Branch Road is a dead-end trail on the south side of the Tennessee River in Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge. This trail is not well maintained and does have a washout. It provides nice views of the wetlands and ends on a river tributary where you could put in a small boat.

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 trail or risk losing access to this beautiful area.
