You can see the Indian Mounds by canoe by taking the Indian Mound Island Trail that begins at Rice Creek Landing, located on the Forever Wild Land Trust’s Delta Tract, 2.9 miles north of the Highway 225/59 split in Stockton, Ala., on Baldwin County Road. 21. The trail proceeds out of Rice Creek, around the south end of Richardson Island across Tensaw Lake, through Bayou Jessamine and into Bottle Creek to a sandbar landing where a foot trail leads to the Indian Mound. The return leg follows the same route.
