Beautiful Southern Appalachian Mountain Trail
The Alabama section of the Pinhoti's southern starting point is now on top of Flagg mountain at the historic tower and cabins. The tower and cabins were built by the CCC and are currently maintained by the Alabama hiking trail society. There is a new seven mile(+or-)woods section near Weogufka Coosa County Alabama. I have hiked numerous trails in the south and this is by far my favorite. If you want to hike a quiet and beautiful trail come to Alabama and experience the Pinhoti Trail.
