Pinhoti Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This stretch of the Pinhoti serves as a nice introduction to less-traveled sections of the trail in the Shoal Creek Ranger District of the Talladega National Forest north of I-20. In 5 miles, you walk along clear, meandering streams and floodplain forest, then climb to high pine-forest ridges."
