cell service on the pinhoti.
2018 ~ Conley Results (FYI): As mentioned above, AT&T gave good service at Adam's Gap, and along the ridge (from Stairway to Heaven, north to the Chinabee intersection). That signal lasted about halfway down the west slope going towards Hwy 281. There was another brief signal halfway between Cheaha falls and Devil's Den. Then one more brief signal about 2 miles south of Lake Chinabee.
2018 ~ Samantha Geier: From a local stand point, the cell service that works best on Cheaha is T-mobile. I've known people to use boosters with drones, flying them above the tree tops in summer when the leaves are thick. T-mobile tends to work in a lot of places those carriers don't up there without the drones.
