The Chinnabee Silent Trail, meandering up a hillside toward Lake Chinnabee, showcases the beauty of Talladega National Forest. Along the way, the wonders of the forest are revealed again and again. Just when you think it can’t get any better, it does. In the gorge leading to the lake, the trail clings to rock walls on an elevated wooden platform and provides views of several waterfalls. Trail Surface: Dirt path; some travel over rock.

Well marked. Excellent shelter. Plenty of water sources before the long climb to the intersection with Pinhoti trail.

We hiked this trail the day after a light snow. The snow cover made for some excellent photos and the waterfalls were flowing very nicely. There are a couple of really nice campsites at each end of the trail, both located close to the creek. Definitely one of the better trails in Cheaha.
