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.
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.
Rode about 5 miles this afternoon. Relatively smooth gravel pathway with modest elevation changes and turns. Beautiful scenery. Very enjoyable.
Great walk and ride. Great for bham as it reflects part of the early history of the city. Blast on the mountain bike.
Easy bike trail. Red MT. Park is full of history & the ruins of mining operations.
Fantastic trail for walking next to water
We walked this trail for the first time this morning. There were only a few shady spots, so definitely wear sunscreen. Very rural feeling. We even saw roosters in one yard along the trail. (Passes behind a couple of homes with Rebel flags, just as a note.) I recommend parking at the golf course end. There’s a convenience store there, as well. The school felt remote. Overall, this trail is easy and pretty well maintained. Lots of birds, butterflies, and even saw a non-venomous snake.
I live this trail. Recently, a two mile extension opened. I haven't been able to rid it yet but thought everyone would appreciate an update. Here is a link to the news article about the opening and plans for future extensions and connections with other trails in Jefferson County: https://bhamnow.com/2019/06/13/get-your-walking-shoes-ready-five-mile-creek-adds-two-miles-of-trail-in-gardendale-with-plans-to-become-the-longest-trail-in-central-al
A trail with a LOT of potential if maintained properly. The original trailbed is gravel, a mix between no. 57 and no. 67, and for the most part was pleasant, well, the 1/2 mile of the 1.5 miles one way that we rode that wasn’t redone in large no. 1 and no. 3 stones (Im talking 1/2” to 3” rocks here) and that was a rough ride. Whoever made the decision to fill the holes with fist sized rocks needs fired. At the end of my brief ride, one of my tires started going flat. This trail as is may be great for hikers and horses, but is bad for bikes. I won’t be back.
Not as much shade as other Greenways , still a great experience! Best in Early spring and Fall. I don't mind hot weather, but some don't. Enjoy!
We have ridden this trail 4 or 5 times in the past and we have really enjoyed it, but not this time. We started at the caboose in town and headed north on the trail. It was very rough. Lots of tree limbs and debris. There were large rocks that made the going very tough. Looks like someone has stopped maintaining the trail. We made it to the northern end after a very rough ride. We decided that we just couldn't head back on the trail so we rode the road back into Elkmont.
We were so disappointed in the trail that we did not try the southern part. We just drove the 2 hours back home.
It is a shame because we have enjoyed the trail in the past. We won't come back unless something is done for the trail.
To say Huntsville Greenways are cookie cutter is not a diss. One can expect concrete and asphalt trails, wide grassy borders and usually a creek. Almost all are well maintained. The best are mowed all the way to the water, have interesting structure and avoid road crossings. Indian Creek is one of the better ones. Just wish it was longer.
