Welcome to Alabama's Freshwater Coast

CRATA trail at Overlook Park

Cherokee Ridge Alpine Trail at Overlook Park

This park is provided by Alabama Power Company and provides a wonderful setting with picnic tables, seating area, and observation platform for probably the best view of Lake Martin.

CRATA’s first trails constructed in 2004 consist of three (3) trails for a total of 7.2 miles.  All three trails are tied together so you can hike from 1 mile to 7 miles with several combinations.

Great views of Lake Martin, mountain longleaf pine, native azaleas, and mountain laurel are just a few of the interesting things that will delight the hiker.
