southern and northern terminus.
There are 170.7 miles of the Pinhoti Trail in Alabama / Sections 1 thru 13
The Southern Terminus is Section 1, which is located in east central Alabama near Weogufka.
The Northern Terminus is Section 13 , which is located near northeast Alabama, just over Georgia State line.
Here is an example of a recent land purchase for 5 miles of new trail corridor on Section 3 of the Pinhoti Trail.
This section is in the Talladega National Forest but there were 1100 acres on top of
Rebecca Mountain that was owned by a family. A private donor from North Carolina stepped up and offered a $550,000 donation toward the purchase. The Conservation Fund used that money along with their money to buy the land for $1,500,000 and then sold it to the US Forest Service.
So let's see, that's $300,000 for each mile of trail corridor and we have almost 70 miles to go...
Fortunately, we have some pretty creative folks working on this.
