We started out our Saturday morning having our trikes tuned at Rocket City Trikes located just off the Chief Ladiga trail in Piedmont, Al. After the tune up rode over a couple blocks an at lunch at the “Elevated Grounds” coffee shop, excellent sandwiches!! Then we were on the trail headed toward Georgia, this about a 14 mile ride one way we meet other bikers an trikers, good conversation an fun! Return trip to Piedmont was great, it is a slight downhill grade most of the way! And of course we topped of the trip with a second stop at Elevated Grounds for Ice Cream!! Was a Great Day on the trail!!
Concrete path for walking and bike riding that is 5 or 6 feet wide. We really enjoyed it. Met some friendly people and animals. The fallen soldier memorial was impressive.
A nice crushed rock trail with lots of shade. It is very pretty but parts of the trail between Fultondale and Gardendale are washed out exposing large gravels that are difficult to ride without a mountain bike. Overall I am excited to see the ongoing work to expand this trail and hope that it continues to travel farther north.
This trail is a hidden gem. The slope is minimal. Other riders, runners, and cars at the FEW road crossings are very courteous. We cannot wait for the full trail to be completed.
I rode this scenic trail from east to west and back on June 1, 2023. Nice and shady at this time of year, the trail is gravel, well groomed, graded, and quiet. The traffic noise as it passes beneath US 31 and Interstate 65 is minimal and quickly fades as one proceeds down the trail. At the western end at Powder Mill Road, I met a kind gentleman who informed me that an additional two mile extension has been completed and will officially open Friday, June 2, 2023, bringing the total to about 7.5 miles. Look for the extension near the gate of the Cornerstone Ranch, which is private property. Please respect all landowners and their property.
The greater Birmingham community has a priceless treasure in this trail. To those responsible for its acquisition, construction, and maintenance, thank you very much!
Started off at the trail head at Anniston and rode north past Piedmont to the 9.5 mile marker. Trail was pretty flat with some bumps along the way. The scenery was good.
We started the trail yesterday from the Fulton dale trailhead and parking lot. It was very hard to find because there’s no signage on the highway. It’s in a city little league baseball park. The trail is crushed limestone which requires fat tires. Very scenic and shaded old growth hardwoods. We really enjoyed it and plan to do it again.
This is a great trail! It is actually about 6 miles to end and 6 miles back. It is very wooded with nice views of the creek. There were just the right amount of people on the trail, you had a lot of alone time but also felt safe in that other bikers, runners or walkers were not too far away. We parked at the Fultondale end. Great parking and again a safe place to leave the car.
One of our favorites! We’ve started at Anniston, Piedmont and Jacksonville State depending on how much time and how far we want to ride. Bathroom stops along the way and beautiful views. Roots under areas of the path but usually easy to spot & avoid. Mike markers are clearly marked and mostly wide open riding!
Husband and I came to ride this trail. We went from the trail head in Anniston. We managed to avoid any rain some lite drizzle but much colder than expected. Rode to mile maker 20. On way back to Anniston we we chased by a white looked like pit bull mix. Food stops along the way would be nice but understandable that there aren’t any for the remote locations. Will most definitely come back!
We traveled on ebikes from Piedmont, AL to the Georgia state line and back. We used assist #1 & #2 at times. The trail was in great shape. The rare bumps had been marked with colored paint to see easily. We enjoyed the shade and spots of open sun. We loved the countryside with the tree just beginning to show their fall colors. We fortunately saw only one snake on the trail. It was crossing from one side of the woods over the trail to the other side. It would have been nice to have a restroom at the state line park given we had traveled about 12-13 miles, however the bike racks, picnic table and pavilion were all nice. The transition between the states was a nice touch welcoming each side to the other state. We plan on returning to travel the other sections. We are both senior citizens.
My husband and I parked at the park off of Yarbrough Road. The trail was easy to access. The trail was crushed gravel and well maintained. We enjoyed the shade and those few short sunny sections. We passed under Hwy 31 and I65. Several places to stop along the way. The end of the trail is not marked thus initially thought it was another road to cross. Other roads we crossed were well marked and traffic was not bad. We have Lectric brand ebikes but rarely used the pedal assist. When we did turn on the assist, we only needed #1. We are both 'senior' citizens. We will definitely ride this one again.
