This is a great trail! It is actually about 6 miles to end and 6 miles back. It is very wooded with nice views of the creek. There were just the right amount of people on the trail, you had a lot of alone time but also felt safe in that other bikers, runners or walkers were not too far away. We parked at the Fultondale end. Great parking and again a safe place to leave the car.
Took the whole family, I rode my bike and my wife walked with the dog and the baby.
Great place to walk or ride your bike.
My husband and I parked at the park off of Yarbrough Road. The trail was easy to access. The trail was crushed gravel and well maintained. We enjoyed the shade and those few short sunny sections. We passed under Hwy 31 and I65. Several places to stop along the way. The end of the trail is not marked thus initially thought it was another road to cross. Other roads we crossed were well marked and traffic was not bad. We have Lectric brand ebikes but rarely used the pedal assist. When we did turn on the assist, we only needed #1. We are both 'senior' citizens. We will definitely ride this one again.
All gravel and dirt. But nice view.
The first portion of this trail is closed down for construction. Once you get past the sports complex, however, the rest of the trail is beautiful, diverse, with places to stop and eat at a restaurant along the Black Warrior River, enjoy a picnic, or just rest and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Spectacular ride today!
Nice trail, espevially for walking. Tree roots are heaving the pavement all along the trail making it very unpleasant for cycling.
lovely trail; not too busy at 7 am on a saturday in early summer. the trail is completely paved, but there are sections where there is a fair amount of dirt on top of the asphalt, so it can get a little squirrely sometimes. also a fair amount of slopes (most aren’t super steep though) and somewhat rocky/bumpy sections, but if you’ve got good form you’ll make it through.
First time on the trail. My wife and I enjoyed the trail. Started on the Watson end and went all the way to black creek park. 10 mile round trip. We’re getting use to our Lectric bicycles.
The trail is shady and has very slight inclines and declines. The scenery is nice, and there are random benches to rest on.
The trail is paved with mile markers spray painted on the trail. Most people were walking, running and taking leisurely strolls with their pups. Not too hilly, but I got a good exercise for the five mile round trip.
My son and I did this trail recently on a beautiful Saturday, plus the extension of Red Mountain Park, a workout. Round trip a little over 6+ miles and not being an experienced biker, just a rider from time to time, this really pushed me. I did walk some but mostly rode.
The extension of Red Mountain Park side is tougher than just the High Ore Trail alone, but well worth the ride.
There is not parking for the High Ore Trail that we could find except for at the Red Mountain Park Side and ride it down and through the Trail.
We'll be back and hopefully I can ride the whole trail this time without walking any. :-)
