Join Wild South’s volunteer coordinator, Kim Waites, on a guided hike in the Talladega National Forest. The hike will take you on the Pinhoti and Cave Creek trails. It begins in the state park then travels through the Talladega National Forest moving through a wilderness study area with the famed McDill Point and then through Cheaha Wilderness, a federally designated wilderness tract of land, ultimately returning back into the state park ending where it began, the Cheaha trailhead.

This hike is approx. 8 miles in length and includes the spur to McDill Point. The loop is traveled counter clockwise beginning on the Pinhoti and ending on the Cave Creek trail. This hike is rated moderate to difficult due to the length and elevation gain and loss. Expect rocky terrain and frequent ups and downs.

Please bring at least two liters of water. Wear appropriate shoes and clothing, sunscreen is highly recommended. Bring food, snacks and a camera for capturing the beauty.

Kids must be 10 or older and able-bodied. This is not the hike to introduce hiking and the outdoors unless you just know they can make this long hike.

Delta, AL 36258
