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 was the first trail I have ever done with my family. It was very easy because there is a boardwalk you walk the whole way to Bald Rock. At the end you can stay in the boardwalk or get off and explore the scenes. We opted to explore and then walk back on a trail. It was so easy and we finally found an outdoor activity my seven year old loves!
Cave Creek is a moderately difficult trail mainly due to the loose rocky sections that begin after mile 2. There are several places where you can get confused, they really need to mark the trail. There are signs in the most critical spots though. The best views are on the Pinhoti side of the loop. Most of the camping spots are on that section as well. I camped on McDill Point which is a spectacular spot
Had an amazing day!! The trail was great and the views were breathtaking!!! Sorry for not stopping the GPS when we finished the hike I forgot to stop recording. LOL, I highly recommend this trail and using this app. It helped me make sure we stayed on track and helped us find all the great sites along the trail!!

Beautiful!! The trail head is outside the park. Inside the park are several short walking picture opportunities. I'd rate the trail higher than moderate. Had a heavy pack and there are some tough elevation spots. Loved it and plan to go back:)
Magical place to say the least! We did this trail in May and it was such an adventure! Great terrain and landscape changes along the hike keeping it interesting! We saw a gorgeous endangered snake that was peacefully passing by. We came across old plane wreckage to explore as well! The views were incredible! We will make this a regular hike and are so excited to have discovered this gem in our home state!
