We rode from the start of the trail to Germania Springs park (mm 23.2) and back. We stopped in the cute town of Piedmont for a snack at Elevated Grounds and then sat on the swing under the gazebo by the history center for a few minutes. The trail is beautiful through the forest, then goes through a rural area where there are lots of cotton fields. It’s a bit bumpy from tree roots that have pushed up the trail. Most spots have been ground down, but it’s still a butt burner going over those spots. Nice ride with not a lot of street crossings.
We started out our Saturday morning having our trikes tuned at Rocket City Trikes located just off the Chief Ladiga trail in Piedmont, Al. After the tune up rode over a couple blocks an at lunch at the “Elevated Grounds” coffee shop, excellent sandwiches!! Then we were on the trail headed toward Georgia, this about a 14 mile ride one way we meet other bikers an trikers, good conversation an fun! Return trip to Piedmont was great, it is a slight downhill grade most of the way! And of course we topped of the trip with a second stop at Elevated Grounds for Ice Cream!! Was a Great Day on the trail!!
Concrete path for walking and bike riding that is 5 or 6 feet wide. We really enjoyed it. Met some friendly people and animals. The fallen soldier memorial was impressive.
Started off at the trail head at Anniston and rode north past Piedmont to the 9.5 mile marker. Trail was pretty flat with some bumps along the way. The scenery was good.
Just finished riding the whole trail. It’s 8 feet wide and paved, really new pavement. Yes some hills but it’s one of the smoothest trails we have been on. Some of the side loops are narrow and concrete and with springers on you get a refreshing wash. Very little traffic and no water or rest rooms available.
Very nice trail along the lake. Easy to find and wide enough for bikes going both directions. Some goose poop to dodge, but other than that very nice scenery.
Rode bikes on this trial on a great sunny spring day. Beautiful scenery most of the way. New business and home construction near the end, but over all a great trail. Glad we took time to stop and use this trail.
1st road trip with our electric bikes. This trail was an awesome place to ride with no cross roads. Lots of people using the trail. Not even close to being overcrowded. Highly recommend the trail.
One of our favorites! We’ve started at Anniston, Piedmont and Jacksonville State depending on how much time and how far we want to ride. Bathroom stops along the way and beautiful views. Roots under areas of the path but usually easy to spot & avoid. Mike markers are clearly marked and mostly wide open riding!
Husband and I came to ride this trail. We went from the trail head in Anniston. We managed to avoid any rain some lite drizzle but much colder than expected. Rode to mile maker 20. On way back to Anniston we we chased by a white looked like pit bull mix. Food stops along the way would be nice but understandable that there aren’t any for the remote locations. Will most definitely come back!
We parked at the Ditto Landing end. Parking shown on the trail map was actually an RV Park so we parked at the marina area on the side where the trail begins. Trail was well maintained - asphalt and concrete. The first part was shady while the other end was sunny. The trail followed a creek where ducks, geese, turtles and some friendly doggies were enjoying splashing around. We really like how the trail did not cross any busy roads but pigtailed around to go underneath them and over the creek. There are several benches along the way if you need a rest stop. We saw about a dozen bikers and walkers on the trail today. We will ride there again once cooler.
We traveled on ebikes from Piedmont, AL to the Georgia state line and back. We used assist #1 & #2 at times. The trail was in great shape. The rare bumps had been marked with colored paint to see easily. We enjoyed the shade and spots of open sun. We loved the countryside with the tree just beginning to show their fall colors. We fortunately saw only one snake on the trail. It was crossing from one side of the woods over the trail to the other side. It would have been nice to have a restroom at the state line park given we had traveled about 12-13 miles, however the bike racks, picnic table and pavilion were all nice. The transition between the states was a nice touch welcoming each side to the other state. We plan on returning to travel the other sections. We are both senior citizens.
