Pinhoti Hiking Trail

The Alabama Pinhoti Trail, a national recreation trail, is the pride of Alabama hikers. This 100+ mile long path is the backbone of a trail system second to none in the state as it meanders through rolling hillsides, up rocky crags, past mountain streams and waterfalls, and the panoramic vistas atop the mountains of the Talladega National Forest. The name “Pinhoti” is a Native American word meaning “turkey home,” and there is the chance that you will stir up some wild turkeys along the trail. In 1999 the trail was designated one of only 50 “National Millennium Trails” in the country.
