Nubbin Creek Loop

Nubbin Creek Rd
Lineville, AL 36266

This little-known hike is quickly becoming well known. Located just south of Cheaha Mountain, Alabama’s highest peak, the Nubbin Creek Trail is a true classic, showcasing what makes the Talladega National Forest a true treasure for Alabama. For day-hikers, the 6-mile out-and-back is wonderful. Climbing the side of the Little Caney Head Mountain from the trailhead, the path passes several sparkling cascades as they flow down the mountain. Remember that some of these falls are seasonal. Early spring is the best time to catch them all. And don’t miss the short side trail .3-miles into the hike along this thick rhododendron-lined path. Many people miss it but it’s worth keeping an eye out for as you come out onto a bluff for a breathtaking view into a small gorge where the waters of Nubbin and Mills Shoals Creek converge into a frothy show. Be warned that the white blazes become hard to find as you near the top of the ridge and the turn-around for this trip, the intersection of the Nubbin and Cave Creek Trail.
