In places, the Pinhoti Trail has recently had many of its trademark "turkey foot" trail blazes painted over with solid 4"X2" blue blazes. This is particularly true around the Chinnabee Silent Trail, Odum Trail and Pinhoti Trail junction.
BE VERY CAREFUL that you don't make a wrong turn here because the Odum Trail leading to High Falls and the Pinhoti leading to Adams Gap are now marked identically. USE YOUR MAP!!!
Alabama is plugging the Pinhoti Trail in magazine ads to boast that it now connects Alabama to the rest of the Appalchian Trail - something the AT founder Benton MacKaye envisioned. Haven't found an online map yet outlining it.
There are no routes that lead to the summit. It is only accessable by car. Also, I wasn't required to get any permit. You only need to pay a buck per person to drive to the summit.
False. We hiked from the end of Cheaha road to the summit on a trail.
Park entrance fee is now $2 per person. Well worth it!
$5 per person - Went up in 2015.
I don't see any free campsites or areas on their website? Enlighten on how to get to them?
