My sister and I had a GREAT time on this hike once we found the trail head, lol. The way up the mountain was a great cardiovascular work out, but not too hard on the legs. You cross streams and creeks several times. I can imagine that there is much more brush in the spring and summer. We did not encounter any wildlife. The view from the top of Talladega Mountain was great! The hike went very quick. It was almost over before we wanted it to be. We will be going back again, possibly even to camp.

This trail was a great hike with plenty of waterfalls and nice views. The best is toward the end of this hike and the water cascades down a long 45 degree incline with several dropoffs along the way. There is a large house sized boulder about 150 feet up the falls on the right which gave an excellent view when standing on top. It's difficult to get to, but was worth the effort.

"Although the full Nubbin Creek Trail is four miles long, the first two miles are the most enjoyable and are described here. The trail meanders gradually up the side of Talladega Mountain, passing three waterfalls and ending with panoramic views. The trail is lined with a variety of wildflowers in spring. Waterfalls abound in the Talladega National Forest, and the Nubbin Creek Trail highlights several of them. The main attractions of the trail fall within its first 2 miles.The final 2 miles, which aren’t covered in this description, are overgrown with vegetation and lack sufficient trail markers.The full 4.0-mile trail ends at its intersection with the Cave Creek Trail. A round-trip hike to this point could make a good overnight trip, with some nice campsites along the ridgetops."
