Note: This is an "EXPLORATORY" trip. This means that there are parts of this trip, or perhaps the whole trip, that is new to your Trip Leader(s). However, they are confident that this will not be an issue.
This note is here so that you can make an informed decision. When a Trip Leader isn't personally familiar with a trip, there is an increased chance of things not going as planned and you need to be prepared. The Trip Leader may have additional details in the itinerary.
Join me as I continue my way south on the Pinhoti Trail in the Talladega National Forest. Sweat off some of your Christmas excess!
On this trek we will enjoy 2 lakes, a long creek, a shelter and an old church/graveyard as we meander through the serene wilderness of central Alabama. This section of the wilderness is known for its' flowing streams and rolling hills. The forest is beautiful!
We will begin at the Coleman Lake Trailhead parking area and make our way to Coleman Lake. Just after the lake we will come across the Shoal Creek Baptist Church with its' attached graveyard from long ago. After the church we will continue along rolling hills until we reach Sweetwater Lake. After the lake a quick, flat walk will lead to our turnaround at the Pine Glen Parking area. Somewhere along the way we will stop for a non-nutritious lunch.
This is a long and FAST trek over rolling hills with no steep climbs to get in our way. Recent D5 experience is required to join the fun.
