CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Mt. Cheaha West

Ride 3.3 miles gaining 1,141’ at 6.5% average grade.

Climb summary by PJAMM ambassador Dan Razum.

We begin at Cheaha Lake, on Cheaha Road.  The road starts out as 2 lanes but that is only in front of the lake, it soon becomes more narrow.  The road condition is good, it goes through a quiet forest, and there is little traffic, so it is not a problem.

After a mile we reach Route 281 and turn north.  Rte 281 is a wider road and we continue on through the forest and the traffic remains light.  In a mile and a half we reach the entrance to Cheaha State Park.

There is an entrance fee of $5 ($2 for Seniors, 62+), as of 2022.  The entrance fee is per person, so cyclists must also pay.

After entering the park we continue to climb for a half mile before reaching the summit, where there is a large stone firetower.  The firetower is open, you are allowed to walk inside and there is a nice view from the top.

A worthwhile side trip is to bike a half mile or so to the backside of the park and walk to Bald Rock.  There is a parking lot and a wooden walkway leading to Bald Rock. The walkway is 0.3 miles long but bikes aren't allowed, you will have to walk.  There is an expansive view at Bald Rock, well worth the walk if your shoes will allow it.
