I did this when I traveled with my ministry to Mt. Cheaha.
It's a pretty peaceful trail, as the name suggests, and the autumn trees made it beautiful with Cheaha in the background.
I'm only throwing for stars because of the trash around the creek areas, which is more at fault of the visitors.

I hiked this trail with my 4 and 10 year olds. It's ok for kids. Unfortunately there was not much of water left In The creek so there was no falling water, actually no water at all just some exposed rocks, still pretty though. The fun part is toward the lake with the rocky, narrow and steep trail. I'd love to come back when there is no drought.

unfortunately we got a late start and was on the trail for 2 hours and had to cut our trip to Cheaha falls shelter short... half way in... oh well... there is always another day. thoroughly enjoyed the outing though!

This is my favorite trail in Cheaha! Perfect for day hikes and backpacking. Devil's Den is a must see!

Loved this trail, especially the waterfall that was just a little ways in! Amazing swimming pool at the bottom of the short waterfall with rocks to jump from into it!

loved it. did it as my first overnight camp/hike. was a little tough for a beginner with full camping gear.. but overall it was an excellent trail. scenery is gorgeous. will definitely go again

A moderate and leisurely hike - this trail is one of my favorite go-to hikes with my toddler. Stopping at Cheaha Falls is a great place to cool off in the summer and enjoy a quick snack before heading on towards Devils Den. A great hike any time of the year! During the summer, definitely watch out for (AND RESPECT!) the snakes. They love soaking up the sun on this gorgeous trail as well.

Nice hike! The waterfalls are a joy to view and even better to get into and have a quick swim if the weather is right. The trail is moderate to easy depending on your abilities. Some rocks to traverse and some of the ledges are steep. It wasn't too crowded on the Sunday afternoon that we went. There are places where the tree canopy is very light and the direct sun will make you want to jump in the water too cool off for sure. Had the dog with as well and he enjoyed. But I wouldn't bring smaller dogs unless you want to carry them over some of the rocky areas.

Very entertaining hike as you have several waterfalls to pick from as locations to stop and get in the water or have a lunch. There is a lot of up and down in between if you get away from the lake. Many opportunities to stop and pitch a tent if you are so inclined and spend a little more time enjoying the location.

One of my favorite trails
