My husband, son (age 12) and I hiked a portion of this section backwards from the Cheaha trailhead and it was beautiful! Great views and beautiful rock formations. The trail was not crowded at this time. We spent one night camping just past the new maker that notes the completion of the Pinhoti (small water source just past the marker toward the wilderness) and really enjoyed ourselves. The trail is well maintained and well marked! Enjoy!
The trailhead is closed presumably because of road construction on highway 77. We were able to get on to the new section and park even though it isn't open. We only went about 1 1/2 miles in because we heard gunfire and my son (11) was scared and wanted to turn back. There is a shooting range nearby that we didn't find out about until later. The trail was beautiful and well marked - can't wait to go back
This was a fantastic trail. I spent 4 days and 3 nights backpacking along this trail. There are many beutiful outlooks along the way and you can catch sight of other outlooks futher down the trail from the one you stand on. Many fun rock formations to climb about on these rocky outcrops. I stumbled upon a vultures nest in one of them.
