Hidden Springs State Forest (formerly referred to as Shelby State Forest) is named for the seven known springs on the property. Throughout time, many of the springs have been covered by vegetation and forest growth which is why the park is called Hidden Springs. The forest is made up of three tracts varying from flat areas to steep hillsides. Picnicking, camping, hiking and hunting are all common activities at this park.

The main hiking trail is the Possum Hollow Nature Trail. On this trail you will see the park pond and the pine seed orchard. Another trail is the Big Tree Trail which is a one mile trail featuring a large 78 inch sycamore tree. Rocky Spring Trail is a three-mile trail that offer varied scenery and features the Rocky Spring itself.
