Cheaha State Park Bald Rock and Pulpit Rock

Cheaha State Park: Bald Rock & Pulpit Rock Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Everyone needs to make a pilgrimage to the highest point in Alabama: Mount Cheaha’s peak, in Cheaha State Park. Climb the stone observation tower, built by the Civilian Conservation Corps, for a 360-degree view. Take advantage of short hikes to Pulpit Rock or Bald Rock to get to mountain’s edge.

It can be crowded, but it’s worth it to see the fall leaves. Head to the mountains and cool off in the summer. A nice intro to the outdoors, the state park can also be a staging ground for more hiking and waterfall pilgrimages in the surrounding Talladega National Forest and Cheaha Wilderness."

This is a gorgeous hike. It's short and not difficult, and leads to one of the most absolutely gorgeous views you will see in Alabama. The whole park is beautiful. The campground is tent and RV-friendly, and there are also great cabins for those who prefer not to camp. Mt. Cheaha State Park is well worth the trip!

Shortest hike I’ve ever experienced for a view like this! All in all I think it took us under 10 minutes to get to Pulpit Rock from our campsite, and the red markers were clearly labeled on the trail leading up to the rock. A must see if you’re in the area.

Best hike for the distance, that I have ever experienced. After 2 days of backpacking, I visited Alabama's highest point, with my dog Zeta. I saw the sign for the trail and thought why not...well what was about to be discovered was a very short walk/hike to an amazing view. Turkey Buzzards rode on the uprising currents of air without having to flap their wings but once in 5 minutes. Free ride, I guess. Once the sun sets, you have plenty of light to get back to the parking lot. AWESOME!
