  • Out favorite part of our trip was the many different levels of trails. If you wanted easy, hit the boardwalk...harder trails with inclines and elevations are there too! No matter what type of time...  more »
  • Cheaha is a favorite... the highest point in Alabama...Pulpit Rock has the best views and sunset is stunning. The boardwalk to Bald Rock is so nice... wheelchair accessible with informative plaques along the way. There is an observation tower you can go in and you can use the scenic viewer for a couple of quarters. Plenty of hiking. Get maps at the store just outside the gate along with any other essentials you may need. There is a good bit to enjoy just outside the park, but I also pay the few dollars and enjoy the park. They put money back into it so I try to support them. It's worth it for Pulpit Rock alone... take your maps and water and enjoy!!! Outside the park is a nice lake with activities, Cheaha Falls, devil's den, and other attractions are just outside the park. They are so worth checking out!!!
  • Went yesterday. Drove to every aspect of park. Just so beautiful. Pool awesome, lake is so pretty. Cabins and chalets are great for the perfect places to stay or can use the hotel. Store down from restaurant has supplies, foods, and unique gifts. Ate at the resturant. Inexpensive and the food was wonderful. Staff is welcoming and very accommodating. So excited to return. Mentally peaceful and saw deer Wild turkeys, beautiful hawks soaring on wind currents. Great place to go, and vacation destination. on wind currents
