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.

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.

Missing the big wow factor, but a good moderate-to-strenuous trail. Did the Pinhoti side first, mildly strenuous with good views. Cave creek was faster and more mild.

Great hike. Called the State Park the night before. They recommended going counterclockwise. Take the Pinhoti side first then catch the connector over to the Cave Creek trail. Apparently it is easy to miss the connector when you go the other way. Will definitely do this one again. Great views. Took about 3.5 hours. Highly recommend it.

I would say this is a strenuous trail, considering the super rocky part at Pinhoti trail. Look for the blue marks on trees and you won't get lost. There are breathtaking view points on the pinhoti trail.

Backpacked here on Nov 25, 2016. Great Trail. With the recent drought the vegetation was certainly suffering. Streams were dry. met several folks that were day hiking but the forest was empty overnight except for us.

I hiked several miles along the Pinhoti section of this trail out to Mcdill point. It had some breathtaking views and the trail is rocky along parts. Passed several campsites along the way and the plane crash was a humbling experience especially as i turned around and headed back to realize that part of the plane was in another section. Also took my pup along for the hike.

Cave Creek is a moderately difficult trail mainly due to the loose rocky sections that begin after mile 2. There are several places where you can get confused, they really need to mark the trail. There are signs in the most critical spots though. The best views are on the Pinhoti side of the loop. Most of the camping spots are on that section as well. I camped on McDill Point which is a spectacular spot
