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.
Drove up to the top on a foggy day near the end of winter.
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!
Not much effort required, but a good time nonetheless. The views are great.
Good views from the Tower at the top of the mountain.
Drove up just to summit, at night. It was cold and clear. Lookout tower was being renovated and was surrounded by scaffolding.
Lots of fun had by all.
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.
