Allison G. on Pinhoti Trail: Adam's Gap to Cheaha State Park
Strenuous, rocky uphill grind around 3 miles in dubbed, "Stairway to Heaven". North of that, combination of rocky paths, slow grinds and relatively flat dirt paths. Water sources abundant, particularly starting from the Adam's Gap TH. Remains of a plane crash near trail, also purported to be a wrecked model-T (we could not find it) said to be near the power line easement toward the Cheaha TH and from the days a CCC camp was located on Cheaha. Several scenic overlooks. We saw several hikers, a few tent campers, dogs, and a hammock camper.
Beautiful hike following a creek the whole way and rewarded at the end by awesome lake.. ended up being about 7 miles to the lake and back, I thought we would hike through an old 1800s cemetery but that's a little east of the trail but highly recommend this hike!!!
