Approached from the North, parked at the end of Cheaha road. Trip up was about 3.5 miles and 1700' vertical, very pleasant hike. Cut crosscountry on the way up, but followed trails entirely, including the pinhoti, on the way back down.

We camped for 2 nights on top of the mountain. Had to drive to the summit as it was raining. Very nice state park.

One of the stops on a cross country road trip with my college buddy Eric. Thanks to Eric for letting me take this little side trip to hit this highpoint.

On my last vacation, I decided to knock off some high points, as I'm fairly confident that it will be quite some time before I'm able to take another vacation. Nothing too spectacular about this one, but glad to add it to the completed list.

The actual high point area around the tower was a bit of a let down. Seems it should could be made much nicer given this is a state park. Also, it was quite crowded... but of course we were during the busier fall colors season. The more isolated trails were very nice.

Drove to the top with my dad. The tower is ok, because you get 360 views but the several antennae and dirty glass detract from their quality. I would recommend that anyone visit Pulpit Rock, though; less than a mile round trip hike and an amazing view and rock formation. In my opinion, this place is the coolest natural area in the state of Alabama, and I have been to Alabama a few times.

Cheaha, State HP #2 for us, we drove right up from Britton in FL on the same day. It was a nice little park and peak. There was a wedding going on at the pavilion near the summit. We just watched them for some reason, then got in the car and drove towards GA....

Definitely among the most convenient state high points I've come across so far. Only about 14 miles off the interstate on a thanksgiving trip to see my wife's sister's family in Meridian, Mississippi. Nice little park. Carried my two year old son on my shoulders from the gift shop to the summit. We had to stop to ride the slide near the top. His first high point and my fifteenth.

This one came near the end of a long trip of HP's (15th on a trip of 16) so we needed to be on our way home. Accordingly, we drove to the top. The lookout tower was really neat though (especially from the outside).

Hit this high point as part of a road trip to texas with the family. We saw quite a few deer right around the HP.

Summited this "mountain" as the final 2 miles in the Mount Cheaha 50 k ultramaration. The final uphill push was a cruel joke after running nine hours so far that day! Great weather, fantastic volunteer support on the course.
