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.

davis13Route Climbed: Lake Trail and by Car Date Climbed: All of the 90's  Sucess!


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!

MikeyLPTRoute Climbed: Park Road to top/ Descended via Lake Trail Date Climbed: January 15, 2005  Sucess!


An enjoyable all day hike. We walked up from the pirmitive campground to the observation tower via the park road. Skies were clear, and the temperature was moderate. Descended via the powerlines between the observation tower and chalets, then caught the Pulpit Rock Trail, before descending via the Lake Trail. I reccomend the Lake Trail for anyone who would rather not drive to the top.

A great place to spend the day. I've climbed many of the routes at Rock Garden. Lot's of good hiking trails on the Pinhoti as well.
