Chewacla State Park

Thank you Alabama State Parks and Chewacla State Park for five wonderful free days of camping. That is a great way to convey your appreciation to customers for their support of Alabama State Parks. Please continue this on a regular basis. As for the trails of the park. The trails are great for family outings. We took our 2-year old grandson on his three wheel jogging carriage around the lake trail right upto the waterfalls. The photos above barely touch the beauty of the falls or the park.

Pulpit Rock Trail

5 stars for the view at Sunset, 2 stars for the blazing.

the beginning of the trailhead is steep and slippery if it has rained recently, so make sure you have sturdy shoes.

There are blazes and red x's that can make you think you climb back up close to where you just descended. and then there are no other blazes in that section. (just go down the hill and keep walking, you will eventually see a blaze/path crossing stepping stones).

Trail isn't challenging, except the beginning, really nominal elevation change. Then you come to a T. To your right, looks like logging mess. to your left, looks like a logging dead end. no blazes in view... I opted to go left first... about 100ft down trail, see a blaze on a felled tree. (as well as recent chain saw work... could no one tag a tree?)

keep walking, rocky section, then you see Pulpit Rock. (or I am assuming I was there) The sunset/view was spectacular. Technically, the trail closes at sunset. We made it back shortly thereafter.

Cave Creek Trail

I've done this trail as a part of my loops from the Cheaha Trailhead and connecting the Pinhoti Trail. Not too strenuous but a great way to get out for the weekend. I've gone Fall, Winter, and Spring and trails are great. Winter can get a little cold on the mountain so check the forecast.

There is one long extended climb, or descent, depending on which way you are headed. If you start at the Cheaha trailhead and hike south, you will go up the climb. Not technical but long. If you come at it from the south, from the top of the Chinnabee Silent Trail, you will come down the climb heading back towards your car at Cheaha. This typically means you have camped overnight along the trail.

A good trail, but not a used as the Pinhoti so watch for trail markings and the foot bed.
