Cheaha Falls - Trip Details

As a large family, we find renting a home for a night much more relaxing than a hotel, and it's so nice to have a place nearby to crash after a long day of hiking! You can find nice, affordable homes on Vrbo.

Cheaha Falls is upstream of Devil's Den Falls on Cheaha Creek along the Chinnabee Silent Trail. It's about 3 miles from the trailhead.

To get there, start out by heading toward Lake Chinnabee but park in the small lot just before the road turns back to the north to reach the lake. From there, take the trail upstream along Cheaha Creek. Multiple trails will split off and cross the creek, but you don't want to. Further on, you will go over an elevated observation boardwalk where you can see Devil's Den Falls below. Continue a bit further, then, at about .5 miles from the trailhead, it will come down to Devil's Den Falls with a very large and deep pool to swim in at the bottom (swim all summer, even in dry times).

If you continue on this trail, you will also come to Cheaha Falls.

The falls themselves are about 20', with a large pool at the base for wading or swimming.
