The beginning of the trail is a little tough for my seven year old due to the slop and the tree roots, but the end is worth every penny. The view was amazing and we have some great pictures of the kids! Just be sure to pay close attention to the red markings on the trees. The trail is pretty easy to follow, but at the end you could make a wrong turn if you are not paying attention.
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!
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:)
I hiked this from the lake to the summit with my girls age 6 and 8 it is a steep hike. The trail is well blazed and easy to follow. Great views along the way. Once the trail ends it comes out by some cabins ( not at the summit ) so we were determined to get a picture with the "highest point in Alabama sign" and wondered along lost for a bit but eventually made it up and got the pics. About a 6 mile round trip to the summit then back to the lake. Great time I recommend doing it if you are considering.
We hiked from the Cheaha lake up to the summit. It was a very steep rocky incline for a large part of the hike. Really well maker trail to the top with multiple spots for resting, picture taking, and sight seeing. Once you reach the top of the trail it will end in a parking lot by some cabins. From there we walked the road to the highest point which is at the overlook tower. Just look for the tallest building and head straight for it. We followed the road around to it but that was a waste of time, plenty of cut throughs from the road toward the tower.
