I did Cheaha to Adam's Gap as a pacer for the Pinhoti 100. None of it was runnable at night. This was very technical with skinny slanted trails that didn't seem like they had been traversed a lot. Nevertheless, this is beautiful country and the fall colors were amazing at this time of year.

Didn't go on the entire hike but the first portion of it is great! Lots of terrain/scenery changes and some good lookout spots here and there. Well marked trail.

It was an accident - we meant to do the pinhoti to cave creek but ended up hiking the whole pinhoti. Anyway, beautiful hike!

I did it with two friends in December and it rained half the day. I still had a great time; several nice views and alot of whats great about Alabama. I would do it again. Certain parts have blazes too far apart and they require some searching.

Conquered a small part of this trail. My older two girls loved it! The views were amazing!

Strenuous, rocky uphill grind around 3 miles in dubbed, "Stairway to Heaven". North of that, combination of rocky paths, slow grinds and relatively flat dirt paths. Water sources abundant, particularly starting from the Adam's Gap TH. Remains of a plane crash near trail, also purported to be a wrecked model-T (we could not find it) said to be near the power line easement toward the Cheaha TH and from the days a CCC camp was located on Cheaha. Several scenic overlooks. We saw several hikers, a few tent campers, dogs, and a hammock camper.
