Devil’s Den Falls

ChristyAlabama Waterfalls3 Comments

 The trail has many steep inclines and you’ll be greeted with many rocky paths on the way. There is a bridge that you have to cross before finally descending towards Devil Den’s Falls. If you’re planning to visit there, do the rock garden trail for an amazing view. You can then take a plunge at Cheaha Lake before continuing on the trail to the falls.


Directions to Devil's Den Falls

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.

Devil's Den Falls is situated on the Chinnabee Silent Trail, located within the Talladega National Forest in Clay County's Cheaha State Park. The hike starts easily but gets difficult and rough as you get closer to the falls.
