Tips and "How-to's" A collection of practical thoughts on buying rural land.


Canoeing, Hunting, Hiking On Terrapin Creek

  • This gorgeous property is located in north Cleburne County about 5 miles east of Piedmont, Alabama, and 16 miles southwest of Cedartown, GA
  • This is an extraordinarily beautiful and private property.  The Talladega National Forest joins the property on all sides except one, and shares over 3 miles of boundary line with the U S Forest Service.  Bothersome neighbors cutting timber or building homes is unlikely
  • Hunting, outdoor recreation, canoeing and hiking are all perfect uses for the property
  • Terrapin Creek, a widely-recognized fast flowing scenic river, is the northern boundary for about 4,900 feet
  • The land is mountainous.  Elevation changes about 1,000 feet from the highest point to the lowest point along Terrapin Creek
  • The property is completely forested in mature timber
  • The Chief Ladega Trail (part of the Rails-To-Trails Conservancy) is a paved bicycle trail that crosses the property for about 4,600 feet.  The land under this old Seaboard Coast Line railroad right of way is not included in the sale
  • Access is on an un-gated woods road used for many decades by current and former owners that runs parallel to the Ladega Trail.  Road use is un-deeded, but well established and uncontested to our knowledge.  It is about 2,100 feet from the county road, across land owned by Cleburne County (crosses no private ownerships) to the west line. See driving instructions for more details
  • The Pinhoti National Recreation Trail crosses the far-eastern boundary of the property for about ¼ mile
  • There is no power or water service on the property
  • Prospective buyers may view the property on their own (download the brochure that contains a map and aerial photo), or arrange for a guided tour with the listing agent, Tom Brickman, at 205-936-2160.
