Turnipseed Campground is one of our favorite spots for car camping in Alabama. It makes a great base camp for doing the awesome day hikes in the area.
The Chinnabee Silent Trail runs through the campground and intersects the Pinhoti and Odum trails on Little Caney Head to the south in two miles.
Heading north on the Chinnabee Silent Trail you come to Cheaha Falls in just a mile. If you continue past the falls briefly uphill on the Chinnabee you will come to the Cheaha Shelter. There is a picnic table and fire ring there with some breathtaking vistas of the of the surrounding mountains. This in itself makes a nice two mile out and back hike.
If you decide that you want to take a longer hike, you can continue on the Chinnabee Silent Trail to Lake Chinnabee where there is a recreation area. The hike out and back is a little under eight miles and we rate as easy to moderate.
