Northeast of Tuskegee in the Tuskegee National Forest, the 15 mile Bold Destiny / Bedford Cash Trail winds through rolling, forested hills and upland sand hills. There are a few stream crossings. This rustic trail has several marginally passible sections. The sections on the roads can be rocky, too.

Bold Destiny / Bedford Cash Memorial Horse Trail is blazed with blue diamonds. The trail connects to the Taska Recreation Area and the Pleasant Hill Trail. While the designated trail is about 15 miles long, shorter loops can be formed by using open Forest Service roads.

To reach the hiking trailhead from US85, use Exit 42. Head east on SR186 for 2.1 miles. Turn left heading north on FS905 (just past the Forest Service sign) for 0.75 miles. The trailhead is at the intersection of FS905 and FS906.

Note: This trail is maintained by the War Eagle Trail Association. As of June 2009, the trail is in rough condition. According to the local ranger, it is scheduled as a high-priority maintenance item for the Summer of 2009.

Overall, Bedford Cash Memorial Trail is the 14th most popular hiking trail of all 15 hikes in Alabama. Several of the better hiking trails are nearby Bedford Cash Memorial Trail including Bartram National Recreation Trail and Pleasant Hill Trail.
