Aldridge Creek Greenway

Nice Sunny Ride

September, 2022 by bagolightly

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.

Richard Martin Trail

Nice Ride on a Hot Fall Day

September, 2022 by whit.w.5918_tl

Was passing through and decided to stop and ride North to South with an added lollipop head on the roads around Athens. Trail was great; I was dreading the heat (upper 80s) but the shade kept things nice and cool!! Surface was a bit rough in places, so not a road bike trail, but a hybrid, mountain bike or gravel bike (my choice) will work well.

Would love to see this trail extended, both south and north.

Aldridge Creek Greenway

Best Greenway in Huntsville

August, 2022 by stuart.obermann

Aldridge creek greenway is one of the most popular in town and for good reason. It is the longest continuous path without having to ride on public roads - stretching about 7 miles from Ken Johnson Park on Mt Gap Road to the TN River at Ditto Landing. If you take the TN River Greenway to the marina at the east end, you get 7+ miles one way. Recent tree planting are starting to provide shade on those long stretches without shade. A great place for a walk, ride or run!

Mountain Goat Trail

Nice trail mostly under shade trees!

August, 2022 by wford1

This trail is very accessible. Can park in a lot at the trailhead in Swanee. Old railroad bed that has been paved. Slight elevation contours and relatively straight. Coupled it with a really good ride at the Universities’s campus. Very quaint and beautiful campus. Rode when school was not in session so we had unobstructed ride. Great little sandwich shops downtown. Would recommend all the above.

Decatur Trail

confusing and disappointing

July, 2022 by pmbishop55

trail markings are somewhat confusing to follow as well as riding with traffic and crossing a few major intersections. The positive part of the ride, once closer to mallard park, the ride was nice.

Richard Martin Trail

Beautiful and bumpy

June, 2022 by catherinebogdon

I’m glad I read the reviews before deciding which bike to bring—it’s pretty bumpy. It’s beautifully secluded when riding on a weekday morning. I only saw two pedestrians and two equestrians during my ten mile ride. It’s completely shaded, nice for a summer ride. There’s a pristine (but a little creepy) swamp on the east side of the trail three miles from the southern trailhead at Coffman-Mitchell Park, and goes for half a mile. Looking east you can’t see where it ends. Gorgeous, but remember to bring insect repellent! Will definitely ride it again, starting g at the halfway point in Elkmont. Elkmont

Lol! Visiting and had to get cleared and parked by golf course. A bit steep hill to get started on a tad pole trike but a nice trail overall.

Great trail! Very soothing and scenic. Will definitely do again.

Gateway Greenway

I found this to be an easy quick 2 mile walk. If you are just starting like me to work on getting healthy this is perfect. The history that you are walking around makes it interesting too.
