Short but very pretty trail. The view at the lookout was really spectacular!!! I’m glad me and my husband made this little pit stop on our cross country road trip.

Very short and easy hike. We did this one and another one to make it a little longer hike for us.
The climb back up may be a little workout if you don't get out much. Definitely worth it. Nice views.

One of my favorite trails. Steep climb back to parking, prepare to be winded.

Found the second part of the trail after walking about a 1/2 mile past it! Was not able to navigate it because it was not a clear, clean trial! Overall had a wonderful time!

This was a beautiful spot. I hiked this with my two boys, under 10, and it was no problem. We hiked down the cliff on the rocks and they loved it. There were a couple of spots that required some careful planning, but still pretty safe. A couple cool tunnels or caves in the rocks and lots of beautiful pictures.

Easy walk to the scenic point. The view is beautiful. I took my two boys, under 10, and we went off trail and climbed several rocks along the side of the mountain. It was a great time.

Great overlook! Trail is steep at first but levels out

This place is special to me. It’s a gorgeous overlook of how beautiful the state of Alabama is. Very easy hike.

Best lookout in the park. The "hike" is really more of a short 5 minute path to get to the rock. Lots of cool rock formations to explore. Faces west so it's probably perfect for sunset! If you go to Cheaha Park you have to go here.

Beautiful scenery a small creek when it rains. Took this hike with a dog, and a three and four year old no problem. Easy hike.

Great trail for half day adventure .

Easy walk on boardwalk or a off trial walk. beautiful views off the rocks

Short trail but really good views

This sunset was amazing. This is a really short trail, perfect for sunset viewing.

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.

Great, easy-access boardwalk. Perfect for kids and people with mobility challenges.

Awesome views at the end!

Very easy hike. Loved the view. Will bring my dog next time.

Beautiful hike following a creek the whole way and rewarded at the end by awesome lake.. ended up being about 7 miles to the lake and back, I thought we would hike through an old 1800s cemetery but that's a little east of the trail but highly recommend this hike!!!

Very nice scenic walk along a creek culminating with a beautiful view of Sweetwater lake. Area around the dam is good for a picnic or campsite.

This is the most friendly "hike" you can take. It has a boardwalk the entire way so literally anyone can do it. It has people all over it, but you can't argue with the view at the end. Very pretty landscape. You can't get away from the people though

The beginning of the trail is a little tough for my seven year old due to the slop and the tree roots, but the end is worth every penny. The view was amazing and we have some great pictures of the kids! Just be sure to pay close attention to the red markings on the trees. The trail is pretty easy to follow, but at the end you could make a wrong turn if you are not paying attention.
