Getting There

Cheaha State Park charges a fee to enter. Fees are $5 per adult, $2 senior/child, and military/veterans free with ID. Beautiful trail along mountain ridge Cave Creek Trail is a really nice trail that runs along the east side of a mountain ridge. The over looks are nice during the winter but I'm sure that there wouldn't be much visibility during the springs and summer months. The trail is rocky in some of places and crosses a few creeks. The trail is not marked well but it is easy to see. There are some side trails not on the map toward the north end so pay attention to your map and surrounding terrain.

Shoal Creek Ranger District, 205-463-2272

Once you reach Ashland Alabama, go north on County Road 31 which leaves the down town square at the northeast corner. Travel County Road 31 until you see a dirt road on the left called Hubbin Creek Road. Travel this road until you come to the parking area for Nubbin Creek Trail on the left. You will have to hike Hubbin Creek trail for about 2.2 miles before you reach the beginning of Cave Creek Trail. The trail can be accessed from the Sate Park also by taking the Pinhoti south until you come to the Cave Creek intersection.

I am a beginner at hiking and this was very easy. Didn’t take very long. When you first get there you start at the beginning of a short trail that forks off to two different trails. I forget the name of the other trail. There are a few places flat enough to pitch a tent. It doesn’t really have the “best” views. Not much to see. If you’re looking for a quiet trail with hardly any traffic this is probably one you’ll enjoy.

We had GPS to lead us to the address here for the trailhead. We found neither trailhead nor trail. Most disappointing.

Good trail, the elevation wasn't too bad. There was definitely some up and down, but you are high enough about 3 miles in to get some good views. Great day trail with only a few down trees you have to climb under. We packed in and slept at one of the junctions with the Pinhoti Trail along the crest. Got down to low 30's with a decent wind. We made a windbreak and a bonfire. Slept wonderfully in my 20 degree bag. There was snow on the ground the whole time. Great trip and did it with an eleven year old in the party.
