“The Chinnabee Silent Trail heads through the woods and along the ridges of Talladega National Forest.”— Scott Childress
The Chinnabee Silent Trail is blazed with white blazes although the trail is not blazed in the Cheaha Wilderness.
This section of the trail is one of the most scenic runs in the South. Here you have the chance to experience deep hardwood forests, rock outcrops, and waterfalls.
Starting at Lake Chinnabee, the trail follows Cheaha Creek for 3 miles; multiple trails will split off and cross the creek. Just 0.5 miles in, a wooden walkway provides great views of Devil's Den Falls. Continue a bit further, and the trail will come down to Devil’s Den Falls with a very large and deep pool to swim in at the bottom (you'll typically find people swimming during the summer months).
Two miles beyond the creek, the trail climbs 1,000 feet and connects with the Pinhoti Trail. Be forewarned: it's a tough, rocky scramble, especially the last 2 miles.
