Eastern Shore Trail

Needs help

January, 2017 by bobbitt.leonard

I rode this trail for the first time four years ago and I wrote a review. I see that nothing has changed to make it better. It's a great trai though it lacks maintenance and monitoring. Motor vehicles park on it, garage cans are placed on it and there is debris on it. One car was parked across it where they were demolishing a building. There was a large parking lot that could have been used. As I went around the car parked across the trail a truck headed toward me with the driver looking over his shoulder! This forces cyclists to violate Alabama law and ride in the street whee a trail is provided. It's sad that nobody cares to take care of the Eastern Shore Trail.

Rattlesnake Ridge Trail

Beautiful and Safe!

January, 2017 by pwaseta16

This is such a great place to bike! I rode this trail in August and September 2016. The sky is beautiful and even when it rained, it felt good. I love how it connects to the larger trail which also connects to many others. So much to enjoy on these trails! Has more resting areas than any of the trails I've been on. Highly recommend!

Rattlesnake Ridge Trail

Great Connection to other trails

November, 2016 by thompson_tiffany

Great interaction with the other trails, you can mix and match your length, nice to get off the beach and walk on harder surfaces. Very well kept.

Fort Morgan Road Trail

loopity loop.

November, 2016 by dave.williams1

this trail is far superior to what it's online presence indicates. i think it wanders about 12 miles or so west of fifty nine, and traverses and connects with another set of trails behind gulf state park to the east of 59(orange beach, and perdido key). I stayed in a condo on west beach (gulf shores), and was able to bike about thirty or so miles everyday, never looping the same ride. three bike rental shops in the area (the one that isn't local delivers and picks up for free), all of varying qualities and costs. the trails provide a safe atmosphere with very few bad spots.. wildlife is abundant (eagles, osprey, rattlesnakes, and gators; cypress trees with hanging moss.). the secret to getting to the trail from beach blvd is staying on the sidewalk on 59. the sidewalk is only on the west side of 59. follow the sidewalk, until you cross 59 at wal mart supercenter.. or go east for fort morgan trail. it is worth checking out. i am very surprised by the number of negative reviews. this is an awesome bike trail, and i cannot wait to return.

Gulf Oak Ridge Trail

Awesome Ride!

August, 2016 by fishallday

This series of trails takes you through different terrain, open semi marsh, shaded oaks and wooded areas. Not sure how many miles all total but I would say around 10-12 miles. Great black top surface! Restrooms, benches to rest and a shelter if needed. We have done it 3 different times of year, fall is our favorite. Watch for snakes crossing the road in the hot time of year. Falling leaves in fall is cool. My favorite part of the trail is through the oaks and the trail gets hilly and twisting. I assure you, you will enjoy this ride!!!!!!!

Fort Morgan Road Trail

Bumpy pavement, but pretty views

May, 2016 by tomlaymac

Agree with other reviews. The pavement needs some maintenance, but if you're careful, there is nothing a novice cannot handle. There are lots of intersecting roads and therefore frequent stops that will interrupt your riding flow - but the views are nice. Lots of trees to shade you from the hot sun.

Rosemary Dunes Trail

Wildlife Observations

February, 2016 by frogsrus

My grandson and I biked the Rosemary Dunes trail on evening of February 20, 2016. We spotted two(2) alligators and two(2) armadillas. We also seen several bird species and squirels. This was an interesting and fun trail. Highly recommend it.

Catman Road Trail

Hugh Branyon Trails

February, 2016 by usbyus2016

This trail is part of the multi trail Hugh S. Branyon system that lies in the bayou between routes 180 and 182 in Gulf Shores State Park.We entered behind the Publix and the trailhead for Catherine. We rode about 28 miles amongst all the trails combined, including some that were technically not part of the trail system like State Park Road Number 2. Everything was paved and clean, and although there was a marathon wrapping up with quite a few dozen runners spread out of my of the trails, everybody was courteous and they were no issues. The only wildlife I spotted was a modest size snake crossing the trail in front of me, and plenty of birds.

Robertsdale Trail

so so

October, 2015 by millie07

Nice new parking area on the south side near the new tennis courts. The asphalt is in need of some repair and the mile markers have fallen down. Does have some lighting and at times crosses roads without sidewalks. One way then back is about 3 miles.

Robertsdale Trail

Inline Skating Review

September, 2015 by britte.lowther

Short, bumpy, partly sidewalk, and has several interruptions.
Bonus for having lamps (otherwise I would give 2 stars)

Eastern Shore Trail

NOT FOR SPEED SKATING

September, 2015 by britte.lowther

Unless you can make 150 degree turns at 15mph (without warning and at the bottom of hills)...I recommend you stay away from this one on speed skates. Also...not a trail and several intersections.

Eastern Shore Trail

beautiful and peaceful

September, 2015 by bikingsoulmates
