Decatur Trail

it’s different

September, 2020 by steven.seidel33

We rode the part of this trail which leads from Wilson Morgan park to the Tennessee River. It goes through residential Decatur, mostly along sidewalks which parallel the roads. You must stop or slow continually for crossroads/curbs. The neighborhoods you ride through are sketchy with a lot of trash and poor upkeep. It’s certainly not scenic in any way until you reach the old downtown. Also, I’m several places it’s poorly marked or not marked at all.

Aldridge Creek Greenway

Easy, Scenic Trail...

August, 2020 by burniston2021

....start at Ditto Landing early Saturday morning and ride to St. Thomas Episcopal Church for their Saturday morning Farmer’s Market. Great scenery along the way. Wildflowers and small wildlife - honeysuckle along the creek banks and turtles sunning on the rocks.

Sunset Drive Trail

Nice View

Beautiful view...I found this trail while searching for paved bike trails. It’s too short for trying to get high miles in but great for walking.

Mill Creek Greenway (AL)

Short, quiet, and beautiful

June, 2020 by hritter1

This greenway is only 0.5 miles long that runs along Mill Creek. It has an enclosed public dog park along the way which is very spacious for dogs of al sizes. The trail is paved and is very well taken care of with plenty of shade throughout. My kids and I enjoyed riding our bikes along it.

Indian Creek Greenway (AL)

Beautiful ride

June, 2020 by hritter1

Took my kids (4 and 9) for a bike ride along the trail and it was a smooth and beautiful scenic ride. Very enjoyable and easy.

Trojan Trail

change

May, 2020 by cheetahgirl5003

It’s asphalt now not crushed stone. Great for runs after school or walks.

Richard Martin Trail

Lovely Trail

May, 2020 by vnoel3

This is one of the most beautiful rails to trails. But, it is a rough bicycle ride. Athens/Limestone need to pave it.

Richard Martin Trail

love it

April, 2020 by jeanne4362

My husband and I have been walking this trail at different entry points for years, we have seen all forms of wildlife from snakes to owls. My only complaint is the people who throw their trash out and expect someone else to pick it up

Sunset Drive Trail

Relaxing, slightly rolling trail along water and through trees. Plenty of benches and tables. I'm really glad I found this one.

Redstone Arsenal Fitness Trail

not quit that long

December, 2019 by timtripp68

I started at the golf course and ran down to the fitness center at the end and only recorded ~15 gps miles. Not quit 8.8 in one direction. Nice run though.

Decatur Trail

Very nice!

November, 2019 by charles.klasman

Rode about 5 miles this afternoon. Relatively smooth gravel pathway with modest elevation changes and turns. Beautiful scenery. Very enjoyable.
