Ready for a close encounter with nature? The Pinhoti Trail will put you smack dab in the middle of towering pines, wild dogwoods and soft meadows glowing with the late afternoon sun. The name - Pinhoti - means the "Turkey's Home" in Creek Indian, so chances are you'll see, or at least hear, a few fine feathered gobblers when you're on the trail. A portion of the 300 plus-mile long premier long distance hiking trail is located in Polk County in the Santa Claus Mountain area. The trailhead offers limited parking. This is not the Silver Comet Trail. Pinhoti offers a much more rugged outdoor adventure. If you are hiking a long distance, be prepared for road walking, as many parts of the trail share high-traffic roadways. Long portions of the trail are along ridgelines where there is no water. Carry plenty of water when day hiking. In some sections, cell phone coverage is not available so be mindful you are responsible for your own safety.
