The Robertsdale Trail (a.k.a. Central Baldwin Rail-Trail) is a short linear route through the heart of Robertsdale that follows the former Louisville & Nashville Railroad line. While you won't find a formal trailhead facility or parking area, secure public parking is available at the main post office near the trail's northern terminus, on U.S. Highway 90, about a mile from the charming downtown. The city police department and county sheriff's office stand nearby.
The trail is generally wide enough to accommodate its variety of users, though at several road crossings it narrows to a concrete sidewalk. At other points the trail splits, allowing users to move in opposite directions. Along these sections, trailside benches, landscaping and mature southern-type flora draw small gatherings of locals, lending to the trail's small-town feeling and sense of community. Pause for a meal or browse the shops in downtown Robertsdale during your return stroll through this delightful town.
