I hiked this trail early last summer and It was beautiful...Cheaha Falls and Devil’s Den were full of water. I attempted to go back from Chinnabee Lake this January 2019 and the access point from the lake was closed. However, you can access It from the Turnipseed trailhead just a short distance away. You can get a paper map of all the Cheaha Wilderness trails from Cheaha State Park in the Park office/store. You don’t have to pay entrance fee to stop by there.

Bike trails in total make a beautiful meandering training workout. Wonderful in Autumn

Fun hike! We did this trail clockwise and camped out near the falls. Plenty of water throughout..the water was pretty high so we found ourselves having the take off boots in order to cross. Incline towards the end of the trail is no joke, but the views are worth it! My dog did fine on this trail too:)

Not a bad hike the waterfall is about 30-40 min in at a easy -moderate pace

Amazing, hike wasn’t too hard to get through. Came after it rained and was muddy and slippery but made it through fine. Waterfalls were beautiful! Hiked all the way back, really after the second waterfall/sink hole there wasn’t anything I saw, would just hike to the second one and then turn back around.

Nice trail thru the woods. 8 foot wide trail of crushed rock. Very flat. Good for seniors

Steep section is tough to do with dogs. Would not recommend taking pets on that section. Beautiful hike otherwise.

Very nice trail. Well maintained.

Beautiful place!

Really peaceful beautiful place!

Our first hike of the new year. It was easy and fun for the kids and a great beginner trail!

It was a super easy trail. Really beautiful!

My favorite trail to date. A true wilderness. Did this loop in January, round 40 degrees, did not realize I would have to cross the Sipsey twice on this loop. Know you’re going to have to get a little wet out there, but that’s part of the adventure. Randolph was fairly boring till you get closer to Sipsey from there, the whole time your traversing along the River, there’s consistently something to see and something to maneuver. Really wonderful trail, I’ll be back to Sipsey very soon!

Loved it!

Nice short trail but well maintained..

I would call this a track not really a trail. It made for a decent Sunday walk, but not much to look at.

Great views; beautiful hike!

We thoroughly enjoyed our day hike today, despite the rain. We entered at the Braziel trailhead and took 223 - 208 - 224 - 204. Because of the rain and that it was our first time we missed the tree and carried on for about another mile till we backtracked and found what we were looking for. Don’t know how we missed it - it’s huge! We hike often, so this was a long but fairly easy trail. All in all we did 9.7 miles. Cold and wet at the end but happy with our adventure. We can’t wait to come back in the spring.

Awesome experience

Mostly flat easy paved/sidewalk route. I did 2 miles today. Lots of students use this walkway due to convenience to campus.

I only went about 3 miles in as I was strapped for time, but what I did was pretty enjoyable. I had no problem on those 3 miles in my '06 2WD Explorer with tires at the end of their life other than where I turned around where I had to come back up a muddy hill, but I still managed to get up with a decent amount of steady throttle. I want to go back and see how far I can go. I saw a Honda Pilot (though 4WD I presume) going down the trail coming from the other direction so either it's not too tough or they turned around somewhere.

Moderately flat. Parts of it followed the creek. Nice cascading small waterfalls. Very well-maintained and trees were marked. Trail is also s mountain bike trail. There were 2 folks hunting squirrels so next time I’ll wear a bright orange hat!

Great hike beautiful waterfall! As others have mentioned, it’s steep going down, take your time...we had lunch on the rocks as well.

I believe this is one of the newer CRATA trails. Drove over Thursday from Montgomery for a day hike and some me time. Really enjoyed the trail. Was really relaxing as the trail meandered by the stream. The Cherokee Ridge Alpine Trail Association does a great job. The four benches and the picnic table are a great addition. The hills are kind of tiring. Was glad I had a hiking stick on the boulder section. The pine straw was kinda slick. Overall a really nice trail. One of my favorite in the area.

I did the 3.5 mile hike today with my dog. The trail was well marked and fairly easy to follow. My suggestion to the folks that maintain the trail is to update the blazers especially in places where it seems you could go multiple directions. They were easy enough to follow but some could use a repaint. Other than that the trail was well marked and great sights to see along the way. It had a few sections that were moderately challenging but not to bad. I did get a slight bit confused at the beginning.m but that was my fault for not paying attention. When you park at the trail head you will come back to the road in the first few minutes but just pay attention to the markers on the curb that lead you back into the woods after waking the street for a little ways. All in all a great trail and takes you away from even realizing you are in Alabama. I would recommend to anyone.

Beautiful hike, well maintained even in winter. Go early to avoid the crowd. Great views and waterfalls, creeks.
