Recent Trail Reviews

Timpoochee Trail

A Touring Trail

February, 2017 by jamesmurphy5382

I rode this trail the entire length. It is not a bicycle trail for serious bike riders. While it wanders through some beautiful terrain, it is compromised by many driveways and road crossings not to mention the multitude of pedestrians. In Rosemary Beach area it is a concrete sidewalk about 4 feet wide. In many places the trail is very rough with pots and bumps due to the many cuts and patches.
If you are into a slow touring ride you will be OK.

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!

Timpoochee Trail

Inconsistent; Maybe OK for Mountain Bikes; Road bikes, Trikkes, and inline skaters: Go elsewhere

December, 2016 by susancnett

I was greatly disappointed in this trail. An 18-mile, paved trail sounds so wonderful, but the reality was a different story. It has so much potential, it is a shame that it wasn't better designed and isn't better maintained. Mountain bikers, walkers and joggers might find this trail ok, but there is a reason all the road-bikes were on the road and not on the trail, and someone on inline skates would not be able to use most of the parts of the trail we experienced (the 6.5 miles on the southeast section).

Having read the reviews of how busy and crowded this trail tends to be, we set out early on Christmas morning to enjoy this trail. We started at the southeast end of the trail, planning to ride our Trikkes at least 10 miles before turning around. The trail was so poor, we gave up in frustration at 6.5 miles, and Trikked back to the car. Perhaps further on the trail we would have encountered better conditions, but we were too tired of trying to navigate bad conditions to find out.

The trail is amazingly inconsistent. Some areas are narrow sidewalks, others are wider asphalt. A few sections are smooth, but too many sections are bumpy, with cracked asphalt that is heaving.

Much of the trail is below the level of the road, with little-to-no vegetation to stop the runoff of sand, dirt, rocks and debris, across the trail. Some sections are actually the shoulder of the road, with only flexible plastic pipes, sticking up perpendicular from the road, to divide the trail from the roadway, with cars and trucks flying by.

At various points, the property owners are watering the trail with their underground sprinkler system, creating puddles as deep as 2 inches. The design of the trails did not provide for drainage.

The one real plus is that in the morning, most of the trail is shaded, which would be wonderful on hot summer mornings.

The area near Alys Beach was beautiful. While I understand the money isn't available to have all 18 miles that nice, there is a lot that could be done with this trail to make it more enjoyable.

Today we drove up to Port St. Joe's to ride the Loggerhead Run Bike Path. This trail is not fancy, but it is more consistent, well designed for drainage and sand control, and a delight to ride, albeit with little shade. Those who designed and maintain the Timpoochee Trail could take some lessons from them. I only wish we had booked our accommodations near Port St. Joe's- but now we know for our next trip to the region.

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.

Timpoochee Trail

The bumpy Timpoochee!

October, 2016 by weaverdennisl

First, before I give the negative about this ride, let me state I am very grateful that we have trails like this one in the United States where we don't have to risk getting run over by a car. This trail is very bumpy. If you have 38 or larger tires, then air them down for comfort. If you are a roadie with 23 or 25mm tires, I think you may not be happy about this ride. If you want to go fast, it may be a problem as the trail can be very crowded at times and the people walking or riding seem to be inconsiderate about sharing the trail. Many times I had to come to a complete stop because no matter what bell I rang or what words I said had no affect, the people made no attempt to clear a path for us to get through. The beaches were right next to us, but you cannot see them for all the buildings. Not a scenic ride as you would expect. But I did get to burn a lot of calories. There are stops along the way for food, drinks, etc. Just chill on this ride and you can enjoy it. I would ride it again if I visit this area in the future.

Blackwater Heritage State Trail

Pleasant trail

October, 2016 by jelkslg

In town for a meeting decided to ride the trail. Parked at the trail head behind the Spokin' Bike shop. Not exactly a safe feeling, and we were panhandled on our return. Better to park at the Milton library (although when we rode by the Visitor Center it was closed where I suspect you'd find restrooms). The trail is very nice and well maintained. Yes, there are several small road crossings and one major one before you get to the more rural area (the stop sign for bicyclists was down here--very dangerous! We righted it but it needs to be repaired). For a short (9 miles each way) ride it was quite pleasant.

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!!!!!!!

Blackwater Heritage State Trail

Nice Trail!

June, 2016 by jlogan107

Started at the parking area on Tar Plant Road on the south end. Very quiet and off the beaten path. Restrooms are there and are very clean. Rode south about a quarter-mile before it ended and had to turn around and go north.

The ride through Milton is slow as there are several road crossings as has already been stated. The one at highway 90 can be a bit challenging. All the other crossings are mainly side streets with less traffic. I did see a few of what appeared to be homeless people around Milton, but never felt threatened.

The trail farther north gets less busy the farther out you go. By the time I got to Whiting Field, I really didn't see anyone using it (although it was a Tuesday morning). I saw some guys with the base preparing to do some work on the path, so maybe the areas where the tree roots were tearing up the asphalt will get repaired.

It's a nice ride. There are restrooms along the way. I think I saw 3 or 4 of the latrines. It is fairly shady most of the way except the northern 2 or 3 miles. I'm sure that can get very hot in the summertime! It was also well maintained, grass cut, etc. when I went.

On the way back, I detoured off the path and rode down to the riverfront in Milton. They have a really nice boardwalk that's worth taking a look. You can return back to the parking area via Pine Street and Old US 90.

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.

Blackwater Heritage State Trail

Nice casual trail

May, 2016 by jabsdad

I ride this trail often with friends. We park at the turnaround behind the Truly Spokin bike shop. We ride low and slow as this isn't really an ideal setup for people on high zoot road bikes wanting to maintain speed. It's more of a trail for the leisurely crowd, families, kids and the like. That's not to say there aren't sections when you can get up to pace, there are, but most people wanting to ride for sustained levels won't like all the road crossings they'll have to stop for. The trail is maintained well enough and has restrooms about midway and at the Whiting Field end. Also at the Whiting end is a covered picnic table where you can rest and recharge for the ride back. All in all a very nice trail to have in our area.
