Not sure how long I’ll do this… but I would like to start hiking again.

Yes, currently there is no way to contact me. When I last used a contact page on another web site, I got nothing but spammers.

Sometimes I will vent my exasperations at lack of info. I’ll then have a nice nap, and move on with my life.

I am thinking about posting my camping trips from years ago. The camping story about the pancakes took place in Maryland about 1961-62.

I bought a book, ‘Explorer’s Guides: 50 Hikes in Alabama’, has info on hikes, but I haven’t used it yet as a guide. Some of the maps are small and/or blurry. A good read, has details of trails.

I designed this site by myself, without any help from the 1-99seo.com site.

November, 2016

Nov 15

Added sketch maps of the area, and interior, or Cheaha State Park, Alabama.

September

Sep 3

Adding some Adam’s Gap photos and a small section of the south bound trail. Done. Adding some photos of the Pinhoti Trail just south of the Cheaha Trail head.

July

July 5

Fixed picture links for Cheaha State Park, Campground 2.

June

June 28

Working on adding tags.

May

May 20

Added 3 photos I took of the 2016 Cheaha Challenge.

I have been told a new map of Cheaha State Park, more accurate than the current sketch maps, is being made.

I bought a WeightWatcher’s pedometer. It zeros out at midnight, so I have to write my distance down before then. But it will never rely on uploading to my computers, no firewall update concerns.

April

Apr 8

Been on second hike. Handled it better than the first one. Walked further as well. Both on Cave Creek Trail just south of Cheaha SP in Alabama.

One problem: distance covered and sources.

NF/Geodeitic Survey Topo map sidebar says 3.5 miles one way. Trail signs say 3 miles one way. My fitbit flex says 2.65 miles one way. Sketch map from Cheaha store says 3 miles. A listing of hikes from the same store, both of these are free, says ‘about 3 miles’. So, I have no idea how far I’ve walked the second time. I’ll just say 5.3 miles total.

But it doesn’t look like I’ll be doing the Benton MacKaye Trail this year after all.

Apr 6

Added the photos I took of a partial hike of the Cave Creek Trail just south of Cheaha SP.

And added this article so you weill know what is new here. Updated the site menus.

Previously to this date:

A sketch map of the state park. The tower photo on upper right is the Civilian Conservation Corps built tower. There is a museum in the building attached to it.

This sketch map shows the roads and camping within the park. This isn’t to scale.

Don’t forget the burn ban for this area due to the drought. Take plenty of water with you to.

Due to the drought in fall, 2016, I would ignore the notations of water on this sketch map and take plenty of water with you. This is a scan of the map I picked up at the Cheaha SP store. I asked before I posted it here.

Headed up the Pinhoti away from the trail head.


A clearing and fire pit just up the trail from the parking lot.


more of the clearing. Looks like it could hold a few tents, as long as you don’t get to close to the fire pit.


Pointing to the parking lot.


Looking up the trail. Still heading away from the trail head.
