Navarre Beach Bike Path

Not a 4 mile trail

January, 2023 by jmk355

The only 20+ mile trail in the area. Cobble together this trail and the Pensacola Beach trail and the ample bike lanes in between and toward Ft Pickens and you get a really fun and scenic ride. Pay attention to wind direction and speeds.

Blackwater Heritage State Trail

well maintained trail

January, 2023 by kevievn

January 2023 We started at the library and because we didn't want to bike through town. The parking is limited. Further up there is a large lot which may be better. The trail is asphalt and level. No roots through the pavement and very little debris. Wonderful trail.

Gulf Oak Ridge Trail

Great Ride

A nicely wide paved trail that essentially takes you around one side of Gulf State Park.

Fort Morgan Road Trail

Relaxing & Fun

January, 2023 by csimp77

While camping in the area we jumped on Fort Morgan Road Trail a few times. First time was just to ride it. The numerous stop signs, if bikers adhere to them, breaks up the potential for 'racing' but there are stretches of the trail where you can just coast and let the wind hit your face. Each trip thereafter on the trial we would be on a journey for geocaching. This trail leads you right into the Gulf State Park trails as well.

Navarre Beach Bike Path

Great pedestrian and cycling trail

January, 2023 by dustonm

Great trail with access and parking near the Tom Thumb convenience store. The trail runs east for a short distance, and then West towards the Gulf Shores national seashore. At this point it is connected, through a bike lane that runs the length of the national seashore. Traffic is slow, so it is a very scenic and enjoyable ride. Out and back from the convenience store is approximately an 18 to 20 mile ride. Additional miles can be added on by taking the trail that connects on the west end of the seashore into Pensacola and all out to the Fort Pickens national park.

Nice scenic ride from Milton to rural area

October, 2022 by kimberlyblair850

Love this ride that takes you through a canopy of trees to open areas filled with wild flowers. You can extend the ride by heading up Copter Road that circles around NAS Whiting Field and through cotton fields.

Eastern Shore Trail

Eastern Shore Trail

September, 2022 by mvporter

Recently I traveled along the Eastern Shore Trail as a nostalgic experience with the hopes of returning and riding the length of the trail along Mobile Bay. And to confirm what others have said about the trail condition. I was utterly disappointed. What Trail Link describes as a beautiful bike trail is nothing more than a narrow unmaintained sidewalk with dangers fraught at driveways and intersections. (It may not even be worthy of that dismal description.) Please remove it from the list of other very fine and noteworthy trails.

Fort Morgan Road Trail

Nice trail. !!!!!

September, 2022 by mcmillan7

The trail was in good shape and I grabbed some of the geocaches along the way. Coming back to town I had a little headwind but wasn’t to bad.

Blackwater Heritage State Trail

Great Trail

Did the entire trail along with picking up all but just a few geocaches along the trail. Nice riding, just a few street crossings and different scenery along the way.

Eastern Shore Trail

Miss labeled trail!

August, 2022 by bobd_tl

My wife and I rode from Daphne to Fairhope and back, 18 miles on Sunday morning. The area is beautiful and very friendly. The trail… it is at best a sidewalk! In some areas, additional width has been added but in doing so has significant space creating very real hazards to road bikes! The path cross every driveway, has poor transitions from the path to road crossing. It is to narrow to deal with oncoming walked or joggers. It is impossible ride at a comfortable pace, so after about three miles, we got of the trail and rode in the roadway.

Blackwater Heritage State Trail

Good trail for Sunday ride

June, 2022 by dpettibone

Parked at the most southern trailhead. Bathroom facilities were clean and stocked with soap and paper towels. Quite a few roads to cross in the beginning. While not difficult it’s aggravating. Afterwards trail cruises on. Nice people on trail and I felt safe. Would ride again.

Eastern Shore Trail

Eastern Shore

May, 2022 by dawnvosbein

Came over to the area for a job I needed to do on Sunday and Monday. Got here early on Sunday and after reading reviews and knowing the area we started in Fairhope and rode south. Nice path for leisurely riding. Only one at a time though so can’t visit with others. Nice and shady but best for fat tires. Some rough patches and a few spots missing pavement but not bad. Enjoyed it.
