USFS Topo Maps / Alabama Section
I've seen the map prices range anywhere from 4 to 8 dollars each, depending on where
you buy them. These are very clear, detailed, big 3'x3' maps.
You can print an order form for maps and mail it to Montgomery or order online via email.
You can also pick up the maps at:
Cheaha State Park ~ 256-488-5111
USFS office in Talladega ~ 256-362-2909
USFS office in Heflin ~ 256-463-2272
USFS HQ in Montgomery ~ 334-832-4470
Most times they have a full set on hand, but not always.
USFS Alabama Topo Map Coverage Guide
Here is a map coverage guide for the USFS topos. The maps will have the old Section
numbers on them, which are listed here in parentheses.
Just ask for the map number you need - not the Section number.
Alabama Section Northern Terminus
Map 1: Sections 11, 12 (2, 1)
Map 2: Section 10 (3)
Map 3: Sections 7, 8, 9 (6, 5, 4)
Map 4: Section 6 (7)
Map 5: Section 5 (8)
The Forest Service has not made maps for Section 13 thru 31.
You can also order the USFS maps online through Omni Map.
Here is a link to the Maptech topo map website. Just insert a landmark name or town,
etc. and the state and then click "go" to view that topo map (the Pinhoti Trail corridor is
not shown on these maps).

If you can enlarge this map enough,
the Pinhoti is a dotted line that
begins below Cheaha at what looks
like Clairmont Gap, today's mile
61.2, and travels north to Coleman
Lake Trailhead, today's mile 127.7,
for a total distance of 66.5 miles.
My brother and I hiked the Pinhoti
for the first time in the late 70's
and we started at Clairmont Gap.
