gwave47Wheres the trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 11, 2006


Couldn't find a trail that started at the base and went to the top. So I started at the top and went to the bottom and returned back up. The views were decent, I guess the best AL has to offer, it was worth the trip and it was highpoint number 4.

TLPFor Alabama this is impressive  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 21, 2006


I was impressed by this mountain. I didn't think Alabama would have something like this. There's a nice overlook on the drive there that gives you a good idea of the size of this mountain.

At a conference in Atlanta. Drove over to bag as a state HP. Looks like a neat place to spend a few days backpacking

Joseph Claghorn

This is actually the most accessible high point from Atlanta, and is one of the best ones in the region. I've done a lot of trips to the North Georgia Mountains, but was pleasantly suprised by the "Alabama Alps" with the scenic parkway (a diminuitive blue Ridge parkway). Be careful when hiking here in the late spring/summer. Although the terrain feels a lot like North Georgia, the elevations are significantly lower and it can get very hot, especially if you are trying the Lake Trail approach, which I highly recommend.

kozRoute Climbed: Drive-up; hike from the gate Date Climbed: July 28, 2004  Sucess!


Highpoint #32. Rented a minivan & took turns driving from MA (home) to MO-AR-LA-MS-AL-FL & back. Unfortunately got here at night; seems like the views in the area would have been nice during the day.

An easy drive up. Buildings were under renovation so not much to do. We took a few pictures and headed on our way.

My 1st highpoint. They were renovating the tower so I could not go up to the top. Chilly and windy.

Spent most of my high school and college years hiking, climbing and rappelling on Cheaha. Spent one of the coldest nights of my life camping there in a storm. War Eagle!

CortezRoute Climbed: Lake Chinnabee via the Silent trail & Pinhoti Trail Date Climbed: February 23, 2000  Sucess!


A large party of us hiked this gruelling death march from the base of Mt Cheaha.

The weather was cold and damp/drizzly. The trails for the most part were good but this is an extremely difficult hike. Just because this mountain is at the southern terminous of the Appalachian Mts. in Alabama does not make it easy if you choose this route.

unclehudRoute Climbed: drive-up summit Date Climbed: Feb 19, 2005  Sucess!


Beautiful day for a summit! TV/radio/cell boadcast antenna tower kind of spoils the vista.

About 1.5 hour drive from Atlanta. Toughest part of the summit was finding a gas station on I-20 as we passed into Alabama. Almost had to start walking!
