We will walk 2.8 miles south on Cave Creek Trail, take a short connecting trail to the Pinhoti trail, and return to the parking lot. About 2.5 miles from the parking lot we will do a short detour to a scenic spot where we will stop to rest and have a snack. We will also see the remains of a plane that crashed in the area many years ago.
Here is some information about our hike:
|How to Get There:|
Cheaha trail head, Cheaha State Park. Drive east on I 20 to Alabama exit 191. Turn left (south) on US 431 for about 3.7 miles. Take a right onto County Road 131 towards AL 281, where it dead ends after about ½ mile. Turn left on AL 281 and continue 11.9 miles. You will see the parking straight ahead, at a point where the highway does a sharp turn to the right, 1/3 mile from the Cheaha resort and park offices.
If anybody wants to follow me to the trailhead we can meet at the Atlanta Marriott Century Center at 8:30 am. We will meet on the aisle that is furthest away from the hotel.
