This trail/loop has something for everyone. There are small to mid size creeks, views to post on your social media, a small plane crash site to explore. The trail offers a wide range of hiking. There is the nice flat areas to the rockier (where did the trail go) places. Worth your time.

This is my favorite hike in Alabama and I have hiked it at least a dozen times. The Pinhoti portion of the hike is very rocky and requires some climbing/ scrambling in a couple of places. The views on this section are some of the best in the state. Don't miss the plane crash on the side path to McDill Point. The Cave Creek Trail portion is mostly a forest path with a few stream crossings. There are many waterfalls in and around the Cheaha Wilderness but none on this trail.

West side of the loop is definitely more difficult. Lots of Rock and Hills, with no water source. Nice running stream on East side of loop and not as Hilly and Rocky

Nice trail- saw part of the plane wreckage. The west part of the loop is very rocky. I did not see any water fall? Only few streams on east side.
