Bessemer Rail Trail

great short trail

August, 2020 by foxydivakey

Love this little hidden jewel, nice semi shady paved trail with benches along the way..

Five Mile Creek Greenway

Great trail - flat, shaded, easy-to-ride. Tiny gravel that is very navigable on most bikes. I rode my mountain bike and it was awesome!

Nice Trail

June, 2020 by spuled

First time to bike this trail. This was only my second time to ride this year. Not a bad trail. Mostly flat. A couple of very tiny inclines. Humidity was very high today so not the best but the shaded trail helps a little. Make sure you have plenty of water to carry with you. Pretty active trail. Walkers and bikers but mostly bikers. If it were asphalt I would give it 5 stars. First time to ride gravel trail. Personally, I like paved trails

Homewood Shades Creek Greenway

Great Family Trail

May, 2020 by jdbutero

Just enough inline and decline to give a good workout. Wonderful trail for family riding.

Five Mile Creek Greenway

Awesome trail!!

May, 2020 by hp981234

Great for beginners and no big hills throughout the whole trail. Great shaded areas, great stopping points with benches, awesome width for riding side-by-side or in a group, gravel is packed tightly which makes the ride easier, and easily seen mile marker displays! Highly recommend this trail!!

Five Mile Creek Greenway

my first trail

May, 2020 by stevoharpo

After a long recovery from an accident, I found my legs would work to peddle, even though walking was difficult. 3 mos later, I’m biking about 6 miles of steep hills at the Trussville Sports Complex area and neighborhoods on a Trek Verve+2 E-bike. The Creek Trail was my first dirt to try. It is an easy trail, shaded throughout, well maintained surface, no elevation changes, no curves. Parking at Black Creek Park is safe. Creek Park is ample and

High Ore Line Trail

Really nice trail for biking

April, 2020 by alfredjdavisjr

Wonderful trail for biking. Never too crowded, plenty of parking at the medical center and easy road crossings. Some great uphill challenges followed by relaxing declines. Will come back as a regular from today forward.

BMRR South Trail

perfect place to enjoy the shade and some sun

April, 2020 by jenny161971

Easy beautiful walks with a lot of history about Birmingham!! We walked a total of 6 miles through this green leafy park, saw lots of beautiful flowers, some water and beautiful rock cliffs along the way! Nice benches to sit down when you get tired as well!!

Hillsboro Trail

nice easy ride in Helena

March, 2020 by benjamin.l.smith

A good ride for the family. Relatively flat with some exception at one end. 299ft total evaluation change. Good shade for most. Walkers common but wide enough for all to enjoy.

Homewood Shades Creek Greenway

lakeshore trail

February, 2020 by hobnero

Great trail to tide when there is minimal foot traffic. Most runners and walkers know and understand trail educate however, many who walk this trail do not. Dogs on long leashes held by clueless walkers are a danger as well as large groups who choose to stop in the middle of the trail and hold long conversations completely oblivious to the traffic. Many great rides with no frustration have been enjoyed as well as the complete opposite.

BMRR South Trail

Red Mt

October, 2019 by fuller.inc1

Great walk and ride. Great for bham as it reflects part of the early history of the city. Blast on the mountain bike.
