Overall this was a nice trail. The start of the trail is not marked well. I started walking down what I thought was the trail and it was the property line marker. We walked to little Caney head and back almost the entire trail. The trail is not marked. I only saw 1 blaze marking out and back. Trail is over grown in some spots but not bad. The waterfalls are small 2-4 foot drops at one creek crossing. There are a few spots that have an overlook through the trees.

As many downed trees as usual but super wet. Even before this rainy season there are 4 or 5 little creek crossings, but this time streams and springs are cropping up all over the place. I'd say this time of year (early spring) isn't the best time to go. It's kind of ugly out there, the temp can easily drop 30 degrees, and there's lots of thorns crisscrossing the trail.

This is recommended for dog hiking and any level hiker.It was a great hike but after being rainy for so many days and finally having a clear day left it a bit muddy in some spots. There are a lot of overgrown briars and down trees. Terrain was rough, lots of rocks. I got a great workout from it. Tip: Definitely need hiking pole.

Great trail but easy to lose in the beginning due to fallen leaves. Definitely a workout going up!

Relatively easy hike in general but was rough this summer. There’s some large trees down in the first mile of Nubbins that makes it nearly impassable in some sections but clears up if you keep on. I saw a lot of muscadine grapes near the trailhead and there were tons of small daisies in bloom. If you’re doing this in summer, wear long pants because there’s A LOT of ticks (my dog who is on medication carried home 56 in his fur 濫). Also be aware there’s some active predators in this area- many piles of scat full of fur and even found a partial boar skull. Aside from that it’s pretty steady but not steep elevation gain. Pretty water falls and reliable streams. Some folks have mentioned to me the trail is hard to find nearer to its end but imo it’s pretty easy to stay on as there is good signage. Like somebody else mentioned I typically do Nubbins to Odum Scout to the Pinhoti as an in and out- I think it’s like 7 miles total? There’s a huge campsite at the Pinhoti Scout intersection that’s great for large groups.

Beautiful this time of year. One of the best trails to see water on Cheaha. My daughter loved it ! The last hill climb going up is pretty long but a great cardio workout.

Pretty tough trail going in, easy coming back out. You cross lots of streams and even get to see a small waterfall. There is not really any good spot for an overlook view but if u go in the winter u can get a pretty good view with all the leaves off the trees. This was a fun day hike!

Nubbin Creek Section Only: From the Nubbin Creek trail head, this is an excellent early spring hike with an approximate 500' rise in elevation and about 2.5 miles out to the boulder field and back (5 miles). There is a large variety of plants, trees and wildflowers: bluets, oxalys, dwarf iris, partridge berry, service berry, blueberry, rhododendron, sassafras, cat brier, and so on. Picturesque views of water cascading down the mountain side as you walk along Mill Shoal Creek much of the way. Great mountain vista views from the boulder field before April.

I've done this trail as a part of my loops from the Cheaha Trailhead and connecting the Pinhoti Trail. Not too strenuous but a great way to get out for the weekend. I've gone Fall, Winter, and Spring and trails are great. Winter can get a little cold on the mountain so check the forecast.

Great terrain and elevation changes. Stunning views from a couple of nice outcroppings. I usually like to make a bigger loop by incorporating the pinhoti and odum scout trails to make it closer to 12 miles. Beautiful in the fall. Some rocky terrain and slippery creek crossings. Demanding but very rewarding!

Hike this trail during the spring or fall when there is water flowing in the creeks, flowers in bloom or no leaves on the trees. During the summer it is disappointing as most creeks are dry, no flowers to see and the leaves, shrubs and trees block any and all views. Not that it is a bad trail, we just went in the wrong season. The trail is easy to follow but does not follow a creek near as much as one would think. There are many feeder crossings which were dry. Not a real loop but really an out and back.

Outdoor Club South hiked the Nubbin Creek Loop on May 19th, 2012. It was a warm day but not too hot especially in the shade and when the breezes were going. We made a loop hike by heading north on Cave Creek Trail, south on the Pinhoti, then north again via the Odum Trail. Overall a nice hike! On the Nubbin Creek Trail you'll cross a few creeks that have small but beautiful cascades. The 2nd crossing is particularly interesting as there is a small gorge the creek flows through. The Pinhoti section is a rolling ridge walk. In the Winter there are probably continuous views but this time of year there were few places to look out. About 3/4 mile south of the Cave Creek intersection there are two great outcrops with a view to the West. Our views were great though a bit hazy. From there to the Odum intersection is quite rocky. There are many interesting boulder formations. Look to the left and you'll see what we called the fortress of rocks. It's a very interesting collection of boulders on top of a small hill. Because of the rolling terrain this loop feels like it's up hill both ways! We saw some hawks from the ridge line. The hydrangeas were also in bloom. I was surprised to see some mountain laurel. This is the furthest south I've ever seen it. There is lots of rhododendron near the creeks also. They looked like they were another week or two from blooming. The guides I've found set this at 7 miles but my GPS shows we hiked 8.5 miles. I could see a few places where the trail had been rerouted as well. At all intersections there was directional signage.
