Richard Martin Trail

3 1/2 Stars

September, 2017 by markmoore006

It is listed as 10.2 but my GPS came up with 11 miles (22 round trip). It is a good one for solitude for sure. The small town of Elmont is basically right in the middle and makes for a nice rest stop. Except for Elkmont, AL and a couple of covered bridges there isn't much diversity along the entire trail. It's a 1 1/2 hour drive for me so I probably wont be back unless more is added to it.
I started at the Tennessee line TH and went to Athens and back. Within the first 1/4 mile a big black dog ran at me from the front of a house. He didn't have the cardio to keep up but something to watch for when near the Tennessee TH.
The path is compacted gravel like a driveway that's seen lots of use. The Athens half is pretty smooth but I was glad to be on a mountain bike for the other half. Occasional rough spots to beware of with some random big chunky rocks.
There was one road crossing I wasn't sure where the trail went and had to break out the phone to view the trail. Turned out it was straight across the road but hard to be sure because it was more grass than gravel. A little trail blaze would be nice there.

Good double track trail for Mtn. Bike or Hybred Bike

September, 2017 by OldTerry

Rode today (Sept. 8, 2017) from the start in Athens to the end at the Tennessee state line and return to Athens. Very enjoyable with plenty of solitude. This type of trail will keep you on your toes as you must look carefully for obstacles (limbs, ruts and one area that had numerous loose fist sized chunks of rock). Very enjoyable trail to ride but I would advise caution.

Richard Martin Trail

Gravel Love

August, 2017 by tim.keen

My wife and I cycled the Richard Martin Rails-to-Trails for a weekend in August of 2017. We prefer the gravel trails and find them to be more interesting with a slight bit of challenge tossed into the experience. We rode the trail on 2 Salsa Vayas ' Multi-Surface' bikes equipped with 38mm & 40mm tubeless CX tires and found them to be perfect for the entire route, which is primarily hardpacked dirt & gravel surface that rolls fast.

We loved the trail due to its slightly remote feeling, overall condition, tree canopy & minimal road crossings. It's quickly become our 'close to home' favorite! We rode it's entire length as out & backs for 2 days. GPS mileage was 22 miles for the total trail out & back.

We stayed up in Veto at the Mill Creek RV Park and found it to be pleasant, clean & quiet. We were the only 'weekend use' campers there, with some sites populated be contract workers working at automotive parts manufacturing locations near by. Most had gone home for the weekend, leaving a quiet & safe campground for us. Note: Please don't ring the bell for Margie prior to 10:00AM. Check in is Noon and Margie doesn't stir prior to check-in time.

All of of this made for a wonderful weekend get-a-way with my wife & bicycles!

Richard Martin Trail

Half-Way Fun

August, 2017 by jimofsomerville

Started in Athens and rode to Elkmont then back. Later drive car with bikes back to Elkmont where we toured Belle Chevre goat cheese place then ate at their sandwich shop. Excellent food. Bike trail was excellent, flat and very clean. Plan on starting in Elkmont next and riding North to complete total trek.

Decatur Trail

Smooth Sailing

August, 2017 by joel10

Great trail for easy biking. Decatur just added several miles and plan to add additional trails soon. Particularly good for family rides if you start at Point Mallard. Much of those trails are not shared with vehicles. Beginning near Market Street the paths are on city streets, but still well marked. The majority, if not all, of the trails are on asphalt. There is plenty of parking at all the trailheads.

Richard Martin Trail

Tree Tunnel Paradise

June, 2017 by willmarth2

We started in Elkmont at the caboose and traveled south. Beautiful tree tunnel almost all the way to Athens. There are gently sloping hills. We went early in the morning in June and there is a swamp area to the East with green algae that reflects beautifully. Beware of mosquitoes.

Indian Creek Greenway (AL)

Worth the exercise

May, 2017 by lordrindal

Awesome trail to run, walk, or bike. Runs along the creek, has multiple bridges, mostly flat surface, grass is cut on both sides to open up road. Saw rabbits, squirrels, cows, and horses along the trail.

Richard Martin Trail

Good walk, but not the dogs!!!

May, 2017 by aebetter

Loved my hike including lunch in Elkmont. The dogs in Veto made me most uncomfortable. Won't be back.

Richard Martin Trail

Great trail

April, 2017 by landondykes

This trail was nice… Mostly flat… Clear… And wide. We did the full 10.2 miles each way… Very scenic… This is a very well-kept trail… With very nice bathrooms at the start and at the end.

We started from the Piney Chapel Rd parking lot in Athens, Alabama.

Loved the town of Elkton...there is a really quaint Creamery right next to the trail that has a nice, covered picnic area and they sell amazing goat cheese!!!

We will definitely do this trail again!!!

Decatur Trail

Review Update

March, 2017 by rmheeth

I rode this trail recently for the first time in a few years and some problems still exist while some have improved. The Point Mallard end of the trail is still very nice and easy to follow. They have made improvements to most of the sections of the trail that previously had been very close to the water's edge, moving them several feet back.

The city of Decatur has a master plan to extend this trail throughout the city but work has been done in fits and starts. If you decide to take the northern end of the trail or the new part downtown by the railroad tracks, be sure to bring a map because markings for the trail are scarce.

TVA Nature Loop

Beautiful day!

We had a great time! It is a good trail for people of all ages and abilities. There were also some beautiful views!

Bradford Creek Greenway

Nice Greenway connecting Palmer Park to Heritage Elementary

October, 2016 by naderi57

Nice paved trail through woods and running along side Bradford creek. This Greenway is shady and cool in the summer and good for a quick ride/walk/run in the morning or after work, as well as to travel to some local businesses. New pavement links it to a short path at the Mill Creek Dog park traveling along Mill Road, a distance of about a mile. From Mill Road south it is .7 miles to Palmer Park. From Mill Road north, it is 1.7 miles to Heritage Elementary school.
From the School, you can continue on a paved path running the length of County line road, from HWY 72 to HWY 20, a distance approximately 5 miles. (nearly complete as of 10/2016)
Park at Mill Creek Dog Park, Mill Creek Elementary, Palmer Park, Heritage Elementary or parking lots along County Line Rd. for access.
