Cool tower but there was a Mountain Bike race going on that morning that made it a really crowded place. Kinda felt like we were doing something we shouldn't just by being there.

Date Climbed: Dec 12, 1986


My entire family visited this state highpoint as part of our family quest for them during the period Sept 1985 to September 1987. This was number 16 of my 49 state high points with Vanessa, and number 5 for Hillary and Holly.

We hiked from Cheaha Lake, and you gain about 1,000 feet of elevation in 1/4 mile, which was surprising. I like that they've made such a big deal out of the whole area, even if it is pretty commercialized. #16 for me.

The summit tower was ok, abut the walks out to Bald Ledge and Pulpit Rock were very cool.

Unfortunatly there are no routes leading to the summit so we had to drive but I did get to go to the summit. I wish they didn't put observation towers on the summit. Anyways, climbed the some of the cliffs on the Lake Trail. tons of fun.

I drove up to the top with my wife and 4 year old son. We had just arrived in Atlanta and this was the first thing we did before heading toward the eastern seaboard.

I really liked the old Depression era tower. Climbing up the stairs reminded me of the scenes from the tower in Hitchcock's masterpiece Vertigo.

Tracy23rd state highpoint  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 8, 2008


Beautiful sunny morning and I was the only one at the tower. Hazy in the distance. I found a benchmark in a rock on the west side of the building, but it was a secondary marker.

highlandvillagerNice views  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 25, 2008


After starting down the wrong trail from the lake, I finally found the trailhead for the Lake Trail at a different spot than shown on the map. I stopped to enjoy the views from the Rock Garden, then wandered in circles searching for the unmarked Rock Garden trail, which led to the cabins. Then I bushwacked up to the top because there is apparently no trail. A correct trail map, better marking for the Rock Garden trail, and a summit trail would be nice, but I enjoyed hiking there anyway. HP10

Date Climbed: Apr 13, 2008


Climbed via the Cheaha Lake Trail and spent quite a while at the Rock Garden. Beautiful area! Most would probably assume that there is nothing like this in Alabama. The summit itself was anticlimatic, but the mountain itself is impressive for this state. It was a great day for climbing.

TiogaBradfordSurprisingly Beautiful  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 4, 2008


Climbed up from Cheaha Lake to the Rock Gardens, and then found the top by following a myriad of roads to the highpoint. The best part was the view from the Rock Gardens...a surprisingly beautiful view, and I had it mostly to myself. 7th highpoint, I think.

Date Climbed: Dec 26, 2007


The Observation Tower was worth the drive to this State Highpoint. Beautiful weather, gorgeous views. I met a couple of highpointers from Georgia, and talked with them for a while.
Minor highpointing milestone: This was my 10th State Highpoint reached.

There was construction going on all around the summit, but they let me sneak in and tag the highest point. A nice area.

Drove up Friday and hiked and bouldered around Bald Rock (after making the obligatory stop at the highpoint), then watched the sunset at Pulpit Rock. Completely alone on the trails (refreshingly). Was joined by co-workers after making camp in the lower primitive camping. BEAUTIFUL WEATHER. In the morning hiked into the rock gardens and rappelled and climbed until sunset on Saturday. The absolute best weekend I've in the last 9 month of living in Alabama.
