Rockdale River Trail

A fine, fine, trail

October, 2021 by gordorad

Great paved trail. It is actually three or more trails, as this trail interconnects to several others. Concrete almost the entire way, and very smooth. I rode this on a Friday afternoon in October and it was very quiet. Went all the way to the Monastery and back and then to the Visitors center and back. Highly recommended.

Arabia Mountain Trail

hidden gem

October, 2021 by sunsup82

Enjoyed a day of beautiful biking. Definitely would recommend.

Rockdale River Trail

Fantastic trail to ride and love how it connects to the Arabia mtn and panola mtn trails! We started at the monastery which is a great start point. Glad I have an ebike because of the hills!!

Eastside Trail (Covington)

Such a wonderful walk! Some challenging inclines surrounded by beautiful nature. I will be adding this to my regular rotation.

Hidden Gem

We walked on the Newbern side of this trail today it was very clean, quiet and peaceful. All while being shaded the whole time.

South River Trail

Be Aware if parking at MLK Jr. High School

April, 2021 by nbpadula

We parked at MLK Jr. High School on a Sunday around noon, and after getting back to our car, the school had locked the entrance gates, preventing us from leaving the parking lot. Probably an accident, but keep this in mind when choosing where to park. Otherwise, it's a great trail!

Cricket Frog Trail

very nice trail!

April, 2021 by vonstumpf

Great place for families!

Eastside Trail (Covington)

Great trail with lots of incline changes.

April, 2021 by sdavis292

It was a fun and sometimes strenuous bike ride, but a clean and safe place to enjoy the outdoors with your family.

Cricket Frog Trail

Great leisurely ride!

April, 2021 by sdavis292

Very nice, clean and wide path. Perfect for a leisurely afternoon ride. Very few hills and inclines are minimal.

Arabia Mountain Trail

More than you might think

March, 2021 by chafields

The title is based on this trail connecting to so many others. You could ride this trail all day!
First, a public service : The StoneCrest Mall trail head is a bit tricky to find. You can park anywhere in the vast parking lot, but my gps pointed me to the bus stop outside the theater. I parked a bit south of there and hunted for the trail along Klondike Rd. Mistake! Park north of there and cross the ring road and you'll find the trail. Better yet, park at the Library or Vaughter's Farm, at least the first time. You can follow it North to learn how it ends.
That said, this trail has much to see - creeks, woods, meadows, a covered bridge, granite outcrops, a lake if you continue on the Panola park trail, and wildlife! I spotted deer and turkeys while riding. The trail is also in better shape than most.
For you e-bikers like me, note that this trail is hilly. It will consume more battery than the flat trails you're accustomed to if you ride former rail trails.

South River Trail

Nice trail but not 9.2 miles long

January, 2021 by lb33558

We rode this trail today. It was really a nice trail but the distance to the intersection of Arabia and Panola Trails from MLK High school was about 4.5 miles one direction. It’s a nice wide and curvy trail with some decent inclines. We will ride it again in conjunction with one of the other trail systems.

Rockdale River Trail

Over the River and thru the Woods

December, 2020 by lb33558

We loved this trail. Lots of HILLS and beautiful woods. Something new to experience at every turn. The Monastery was a lovely place to stop and call halfway. We started at the Lyon Rd trailhead and it was just about 20 miles round trip. Would do again for a good workout!!
