Summary: Nubbin Creek is a beautiful trail that travels along creeks and up a small mountain ridge. The scenery is great in the fall as the leaves start to change colors. The trail gets a little steep and rocky toward the end. The trail is well mark and visible. The trail is not exactly as drawn on the Forest Service map but it would be very difficult to get lost if you stay on the trail.
Trailhead: Once you reach Ashland Alabama, go north on County Road 31 which leaves the down town square at the northeast corner. You will travel about nine miles until you see Nubbin Creek Road on your left. It is a gravel road. Go about two and a half miles until you see the Nubbin Creek sign on your left.

Nubbin Creek trail crosses several creeks including one with 3 waterfalls, each about 5 feet high before falling into the next. The trail was maintained very well. Technically this trail is a straight in and back but the turn around is where Odum and Cave Creek intersect. If you turn right at the sign and follow Cave Creek until it intersects Pinhoti, follow it until it intersects Odum which loops back to Nubbin, you will have a heck of a hike. Some pretty good elevation up to approx 2300 feet at one point. Great views. One trail also drops down to Chinnabee from above Turnipseed Hunting Club. It will get you sweating regardless of season.
