Cheaha State Park is the pinnacle of natural beauty and awe in Alabama. Surrounded by the Talladega National Forest, this foothill of the Appalachian Mountains is the highest point in Alabama. Standing 2,407 ft. above sea level, it is no wonder why the local Creek Indians named this place Chaha, meaning high place. FREE Wireless Internet Access is available
This is the most friendly "hike" you can take. It has a boardwalk the entire way so literally anyone can do it. It has people all over it, but you can't argue with the view at the end. Very pretty landscape. You can't get away from the people though
I hiked this trail with my 10 year old and a 4 year old. We absolutely enjoyed this trail! It was very fun and exciting. Unfortunately if you want to get to Cheaha mountain you'd have to walk on the road and we didn't enjoy this as much. The kids enjoyed the playgrounds in the beginning and end of the of the hike.
I hiked several miles along the Pinhoti section of this trail out to Mcdill point. It had some breathtaking views and the trail is rocky along parts. Passed several campsites along the way and the plane crash was a humbling experience especially as i turned around and headed back to realize that part of the plane was in another section. Also took my pup along for the hike.
