 Alabama's Highest Point


 Fall 2013 Our fall color change is here! !  Peak is over  but we still have color! November 15th, 2013

 We hope you will visit us for our fall colors!  The difference you will find as you travel here from other places will be the color change from bottom to top. The highest point in the Alabama has more to offer than in lower alabama.

How you travel to the park will give you a difference in color:

Drive From Talladega Hwy 21 you will get places with a canopy and drive thru the Talladega National forest. This area is still in color it was the first to color and we feel it will be the best. The drive to and from our lake is breath taking!  

Drive from Hwy 49 this is a short distance giving you the least amount of color change.
Drive from I-20, 431 and Hwy 281 you will get the top views these change slower however there are pull overs that are breath taking.

Cheaha has a variety of views for color:

The top view : When you look out the restaurant and from the observation tower you will find this area will be the last to change. This is what we call Peak Season (You can see more than a touch of color as you look out from this drive and from the restaurant. It is still  worth the drive)... Bring your camera and walk out on the deck it is time to enjoy your day.

The view on the drive up will change first as will the area surrounding the park  Anniston, Oxford, Munford, Lineville and Heflin. Then as you travel to  the top different times of the season will change its  colors. We find that the middle of Oct. to the middle of November is when the top changes as well as the view (top of the trees you see from the restaurant and tower).  Depends on how dry a season on how fast it changes and how much color we get.  This is when the lines to the Restaurant buffet are long so come for lunch it worth the wait!

 

You can feel it in the air at night and it is the best time to camp on the mountain!
This is the time to gather around a campfire! Enjoy a fire in your cabin or at your campsite!

We recommend weekdays, less people and more space! Come on up! 

You will not find a view like this Anywhere else from the Restaurant or the tower you can see the Talladega National Forest in all of its Fall wonder!  Book your on line reservation now while you can!
