Overview

Talladega National Forest 600-1 is a popular destination for enthusiasts across the Southeast. The 14-mile-long road follows the ridgeline of Horns Mountain located in the beautiful Talladega National Forest. When traveling north on the trail, the road climbs up the mountain from the White Gap valley and follows the peak of the ridge north. The road is passable by most vehicles and is only rough in a few short sections. The road winds through old-growth hardwood and pine forests with several excellent camping spots along the way. There are several overlooks along the trail offering stunning views of the surrounding valleys and mountains. The road was originally built by the Civilian Conservation Corps and passes by the original fire lookout tower constructed on the peak of the mountain. 600-1 has a lot to offer and there is something for every outdoor enthusiast to enjoy. From camping, hiking, overlanding, and exploring, this trail must be on everyone’s to do list.
