Autumn burned brightly, a running flame through the mountains, a torch flung to the trees. ~Faith Baldwin, American Family
Cheaha State Park located in Clay and Cleburne County, Alabama offers their visitors “a little bit of everything”. The park is surrounded by the Talladega National Forest and is in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains which is named the highest point in Alabama. Cheaha is 2,407 ft. above sea level and got its name from the Creek Indians “Chaha” which means high place. The view of Cheaha can be described as breathtaking and is a place where hikers, bikers, and sightseers go to get their fill of the beautiful scenic Alabama. Cheaha has several trails located throughout the 2,799 acre park. The park houses the Cheaha Trailhead of the Pinhoti Trail, which connects with the Appalachian Trail and accesses the Odum Scout Trail, and the Chinnabee Silent Trail.
The Doug Ghee Accessible Trail which leads to Bald Rock trail is wheelchair assailable. The 1520 ft. walkway had lots of benches to sit and take in the stunning scenery. This trail offers multiple side trails and some of them lead to wilder parts of the park.
