The Cheaha trailhead is a great starting point for many routes along the Pinhoti Trail. You can park a car here and do a day trip to many beautiful sites.

Cool hike; lots of good campsites. Not any water on the Pinhoti in this section. Awesome views on both sides. Going again as soon as we can.

Nice trail for an overnight trip. A small stream was about 2.5 miles into the Cave Creek Trail section from the Cheaha Trailhead.

McDill Point, located about 5 miles into the trip, has an awesome campsite tucked away into the mountain. It has a nice rock fire pit and the view is amazing.

Awesome loop. I was not in shape and this tested my mettle. Lots of good campsites and great views. Only one really good water source and it was about a mile and a half from the entrance on the Cave Creek Side. It was cold and raining and we camped on the leeward side of the Pinhoti. Trails were well blazed.

Great trail, must have recently been blazed. The markings were better than previous reviewers had reported. Went clockwise and took cave creek trail first.

Great 1 day hike! 7.3 miles. Beautiful views. Campsites along the way. We'll definitely be back to enjoy more of the trails in this area!

This was a great hike. Make sure to being plenty of water to drink and a few snacks if you plan on making the loop in one day. They're are several camping spots already made by previous campers along the trail. According to my fitbit the length was right around 7.3 miles. The only complaint that i have is that on some of the forks on the trail were not marked but for the most part it was obvious where to go. I plan on going back to hike a different trail and to camp. Me and the group i was with today had a blast and cant wait to go back.

Also if you lift you might wanna skip leg day if you plan on doing this the day after.

Mileage listed may be off on this one. Recorded almost 9 miles of hiking on two separate devices. Just a heads up.
