Take in the View from Bald Rock in Cheaha State Park
Rate this Adventure Alabama › Bald Rock Trailhead
Added by John Morgan Harrison
Bald Rock is a beautiful location to view both sunset and sunrise, a short stroll down the wheelchair accessible boardwalk yields an epic viewpoint.
Bald Rock is maybe the most easily accessible views I have ever experienced. This is not to lessen the beauty of the location, but to convey that this spot is quite fool-proof, and can be enjoyed by literally anyone. However, I do recommend this view at sunrise during the summer because of how crowded it gets. I first checked it out when I was taking two inexperienced friends camping (was the first time ever for one) and it was a nice addition to the trip.
If you are taking a longer trip in the park, such as backpacking on the Pinhoti Trail, Bald Rock could be a quick excursion on you way out of the park or a meeting place for your group at the start of the trip.
There are bathroom facilities at the trailhead and it is walking distance from the lodge where there is a good restaurant and another great viewing platform.
Not really an insider location, but definitely worth adding to your Cheaha SP trip.
