Thread: CR24 crossing

  1. #1

    Default CR24 crossing

    I am planning a trip for this week with my son. Mileage would be about perfect if I could end at cr24 just past morgan lake. is there any parking near there or should I rely on a shuttle? or something else?

    thanks for any help

    Try asking Facebook group Backpacking Alabama. https://www.facebook.com/groups/124401260945214/

    I don't remember any extra room to park there, and no houses very close. In general, if you are only doing a day hike, it's probably OK to leave a car near the crossing on a wide shoulder even if no designated parking. If it's there overnight, I'd look for a nearby house and ask if you can leave it there. I have left a food bag at the house nearest to the 431 crossing after asking. If all else fails, zoom in on Google earth or maps sat view.

    Looking on Google Maps, there is a gravel parking area/boat launch near Chocolocco Lake 11. It's maybe a mile at most from the CR24 crossing it looks like.

    I've left a car at CR24 overnight many times with no problems. There is relatively safe parking on the shoulders of both sides of the road. ALDOT has even put in a new flashing light (think it is for the blind corner). If looking for a shuttle search this subforum for Dan - excellent shuttler in the area when he isn't busy.
