Chief Ladiga Trail
Chief Ladiga Trail
Piedmont, Alabama, United States
Easy: 33 miles, Full day
"Sweet Home Alabama" is home to this charming southern trail that connects to Georgia's Silver Comet Trail.

The 33 mile, paved Chief Ladiga (pronounce w/ a long i) Trail is wonderful. The 100 mile combination of the Silver Comet Trail and Chief Ladiga Trail is reputed to be the longest continual non-motorized path in the country. It's amazing how much is packed into this 33 mile trail as it wanders through forests, wetlands, hills, a university campus, and...

Jericho, Alabama, United States
Hiking | 6.7 miles
We started the trail pretty late around 12:00am. The weather was awesome, it was that time of the year when leaves just began falling.The first part of the trail is all downhill but not so difficult. The trail is pretty smooth with just some rocks. We reached Hurricane creek in about 1hr because we had to catch up with our group ahead of us. We passed the bridge and we walked a...

Sipsey Wilderness hike - Borden Creek
by SteveManhart on Apr 25, 2010
Double Springs, Alabama, United States
Hiking | 2.6 miles
This is only the outbound track of an Out-and-Back hike.  Start the hike where Bunyen Hill Rd ends at Borden Creek bridge, accessible off Lawrence County Rd 6.  Marked on maps and a very few trail markers as trail 200, this was an absolutely beautiful walk with the creek gushing full and several waterfalls due to recent rains.  I made it all the way downsteam to where the creek joins the Sipsey Fork River -...

Hiking in Riddle Creek & Quillan Creek
by SteveManhart on Apr 09, 2011
Kinlock (historical), Alabama, United States
Hiking | 4.1 miles
A beautiful area.  Walking in creeks in the Sipsey Wilderness can be quite dramatic with high walls looming along side, but it can get tiring and treacherous.  A 4 mile walk will feel like twice that.This track begins as dry walking along Riddle Creek before reaching Quillan Creek, changing to old shoes and walking upstream.  Current was not strong.  It got deep enough in a few spots that most of us cheated and took...

Lim Rock, Alabama, United States
Hiking | 2.4 miles
We reached the parking lot by turning left from AL-35 and crossing the railroad then left again. It is a very small parking lot and you can easily end up parking on the side of the road. The trail will be on your right.We first took the gravel road on the left and then made a right onto the trail. The way is initially easy slightly uphill. Unfortunately there is lots of trash...

Start at the main Monte Sano trailhead following the blue-blazed North Plateau Trail, cross the entry road, pass by the park office on your right, and then keep the picnic pavilion on your left until reaching the overlook.  At the north end of the overlook, do not follow the North Plateau Trail, but go through the vehicle barrier across the road.  (From this point on, trail signage is clear and easy to...

Cane Creek Canyon - Morning Hike
by SteveManhart on Jun 19, 2010
Tuscumbia, Alabama, United States
Hiking | 1.5 miles
Privately Owned land that is open to the public for hiking at no cost.  A delightful owner that enjoys sharing this land and his knowledge of the area including geologic and archieological history.  Once you've descended into the canyon, much of the hike is along a scenic stream.  Before that, you'll encounter a 50ft. waterfall and views of the heavily forested canyon from the ridgetop.  This track is one-way into the canyon for a picnic lunch,...

Munford, Alabama, United States
Hiking | 5.6 miles
What a beautiful day!  A few trees had begun to turn billiant yellows and reds with more to come.  Temperature was dead-on perfect.  No bug problem.  Streams were still trickling over falls in some places.  It's going to be hard for me to be critical about anything in this setting... synopsis:This area is part of the Talledega National Forest.  My path is an out-and-back; it would be easy to put cars at both...

Hiking | 5.9 miles
I started my trip from the Land Trust parking lot. I took the Bluffline Trail from the Northern side of the parking and walked all the way till the intersection with Amandale Trail. The first part of the hike is pretty easy, the trail is smooth and flat. From the intersection with Amandale Trail I took a little side trip, on Amandale Trail, just to check out the path which is pretty...

Chinabee Silent Trail

Hopeful, Alabama, United States
Hiking | 3.5 miles
We drove up to the parking area in our truck and parked and hiked down the trail back to Lake Chinabee Campground.  We had two vehicles so that made this really nice.  The hike is pretty moderate and mostly in the backcountry.  You do cross an old road no longer in use and several swimming holes.  One of the highlights is Devil's Den Falls the other waypoint on the trail.

Alabama, United States
Hiking | 8.1 miles
Highlights: Panoramic overlooks to the West and to the South and small aircraft wreckage. This hike starts at a trailhead within Cheaha State Park boundaries and ventures into the Cheaha Wilderness, all within the Talladega National Forest.  No park access fee required at this parking lot.  A short connector in the woods links first to the Cave Creek Trail, then to the Pinhoti (no need to walk up the highway to where the Pinhoti crosses). We enjoyed last...

Gurley, Alabama, United States
Hiking | 1.3 miles
We started from the small parking lot at the beginning of the trail. The trail is pretty easy and flat for the first part. It follows a creek and then turns left following the side of the mountain. The trail is marked but sometimes not well maintained and it is easy to loose it. A GPS device in this case is useful to keep yourself on the right path.At a certain point...

Hiking Along Cahaba River During the Lilly Bloom
by SteveManhart on May 14, 2011
West Blocton, Alabama, United States
Hiking | 5.1 miles
This easy hike along the Cahaba River's West shore falls within the Cahaba River National Wildlife Refuge.  An ideal time for this walk is during the mid-May blooming of the beautiful Cahaba Lilly.  My track includes a period of wading in the river; other than crossing a small 6 inch deep Caffee Creek, getting in the water on this route is optional.   We parked nearly 2 miles upstream and hiked along the road and...
