Description and Details

Pinhoti National Recreation Trail offers more than 100 miles of moderate to difficult hiking opportunities. 

The Pinhoti winds through the Talladega National Forest in eastern Alabama. It runs from Piedmont, to a point south of Talladega. Side trails include the Cheaha Wilderness and Cheaha State Park.

The Pinhoti meanders through mountains and valleys, which are rich in history and legend. The trail winds through rugged pine and hardwood forests, runs along ridgetops, and passes through shady hollows and mountain streams.
