Those that know me know I’m a little nerdy and detail oriented. I love spreadsheets. Nothing too fancy, but a well designed spreadsheet makes me happy.
The Pinhoti Trail in Alabama stretches for about 180 miles across the state from Weogufka, Alabama and crosses the Alabama/Georgia state line due East of Gadsden.
While this trail is becoming more popular (such as now available on the Guthook app), there’s still not a ton of information on the trail for planning purposes. I went to the main Pinhoti Trail website (www.pinhotitrailalliance.org), downloaded all the “snail trail” guides, cleaned up the data, imported to Excel, and decided it was too good not to share.
I do not have elevation or campsites listed. This is because I use a hammock and can literally hang just off the trail for its entire length. I was mostly concerned with water sources, trail shelters, and trail heads. I used the mileage and data from the above listed website and I believe it is somewhat dated, but it’s what I had. I did some basic Excel functions and have Northbound total mileage in addition to the listed Northbound section mileage. Then I reversed the process and included Southbound mileage both for the section and total.
I hope some of you find it useful. Here’s a link to the spreadsheet: Pinhoti Mileage
