Nice trail easy for the kids

15 hours ago

It was not the heat during this July hike that made it less than pleasant but the spiders and mosquitoes. Had to stop frequently to move spiders and their webs from the trail. (Some very large spiders.) This made the hike take much longer than it should have. When we paused, the mosquitoes would swarm us. They were no problem as long as we were moving. An easy hike but be sure you carry sufficient water. One bridge had collapsed and made crossing difficult. The trail did not appear to be frequently hiked or maintained.

Pretty easy trail with only a small section with a steep incline/decline. The views from Pulpit Rock are what make the trail so great, but you can get some of the same views on harder trails. I highly recommend this trail to any beginner hikers and families.

I'm not sure I did this whole trail. There are a few discrepancies in the actual signs posted and the info here. We were looking for the loop trail (not Kings Chapel) and map coordinates took us to Terrell trail which landed us at the Kings Chapel grave yard. From there we took the rest of the Kings Chapel Trail loop to go back to the road. Really pretty trail. I personally would rate it more easy than moderate. We'll do this one again in the future and hopefully sort out some of my confusion.

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.

Up and down trail circling the Horseshoe Bend Battlefield. The trail is graveled in large portions but is a little muddy in places. The hike itself took about an hour. Didn't see a soul on the trail and only a few people in the park. I also went through the visitor's center and traveled the auto tour loop. Made for an enjoyable half day trip.

nicely maintained and we'll marked, however lots if sandstone and tree roots so watch out for the littles
