1 Review of Chinnabee Silent Trail Backcountry Site 2
Amazing backcountry group site

Not far up the trail from the Turnipseed campground, you reach a giant tree standing in front of a small creek. The trail continues across the water and begins climbing towards the intersection with the Pinhoti atop the ridge. However, if instead you turn right and wander into the woods a short distance you come across an enormous clearing under the tree canopy perfect for a large group to set up camp. Not only is it well protected and have an easy freshwater source but it has not one, not two, but three built of fire rings for all the bonfire fun. This area is one of my favorites to hike in Alabama and this site works great as either a base camp to leave your gear and hike for the day or a stopping point to sleep for the night if you are attempting the entire loop. If you want more details on some of the trails in the area check out my other reviews but if you have more than just a single tent I highly recommend checking this particular site out. A final feature is that if you have any younger campers joining along it is not such a far trek in from where you park so they will have an easier time hauling gear.
