I was looking for a relatively flat trail to condition on my road bike. This was a well-maintained, paved trail. Fun to ride, with ample straightaways to crank it up. There were quite a few people biking, blading, skating, running or just enjoying nature, but it was a pleasurable ride. Higher recommend jumping on a trailhead and checking it out.
I ride this trail at least twice a week. I start on Floyd Rd. and my goal is to go to the end, Alabama line. The furthest I've gone is 15 miles out. I love this trail for bike riding.
My wife & I rode from Dallas west to the big tunnel & back. Fabulous 23 mile ride. Beautiful scenery, well kept, plenty wide enough to ride side by side. We can’t wait to explore the other parts of the trail in the future.
We rode this trail today and learned about “Faith” Hill at the very end of the trail, just beyond the construction site of the last 3 miles that is going to join the trail to Camp Jordan. At any rate, the hill is loose gravel and straight up! Be prepared to work your bike to get up that hill and we were sliding on the way back down, but overall, a great, fun ride on a beautiful and blustery spring day. Do it, you won’t be disappointed!
Great 10 mile ride. narrow in some sections and VERY busy on weekends. We rode on a warm day in the middle of the week. Will do again in Speing!
Lovely Greenway along Guntersville lake with one big hill.
Went out roller skating on this trail starting at ditto landing and it was lots of fun. Great scenery by the river and then the trail all along the creek is full of other beautiful scenery’s. With the railroad passing up top, to the reasonably long straight aways where you can see the hills from a far beautiful flowers, and even the new homes make for a beautiful scene. It’s relatively flat and mostly concrete certain areas are asphalt and you might want bigger wheels for a smoother ride if on inline skates but other than that it’s smooth ride. Highly recommended and will definitely go again and explore even further north along the creek.
Definitely bumpy because it is gravel. I rode it the autumn so gravel and leafy. Some beautiful spots to point and shoot. From a tourist perspective- you get to see the incline, ruby falls, and craven’s house. The only “treacherous” part is the 200 yards of curvy roads and traffic at the end of the trail if you are trying to go all the way to the top of the mountain. You have to really work those legs. If you do, you can easily make it past some of the nicest views off the mountain, past the top of the incline, and to point park.
The trail is well maintained, relatively flat, and very very scenic once you get out of town. We'd definitely come again.
Great urban trail that goes along the waterfront, and through wooded and swamped areas. All paved
Trail is easy to find off main road in city with plenty of parking at trailhead. Thoroughly enjoyed our walk with our dog with most of the trail in shade. This trail connects to Hays Preserve and Flint River Greenway as well. This portion of the trail is marked for bikes on one side and walkers/runners on the other and you need to pay attention to that or get run over! But the trail is very wide and lots of room to get off in the grass if need be. Not a lot of benches to take a break and no restrooms until you get to Hays Preserve.
This trail is amazing! It is fully paved and is 3.7 miles along the gorgeous lakeshore of Guntersville Lake. Lots of areas to sit and picnic and watch the geese and ducks. You can even take a dip in the lake. Dog friendly(leashed, but they can splash in the lake). Our dog LOVED every bit of the walks and the water and geese! There is a farmer's market as well. Lots of parking at various points along the road and a huge playground/park for the kiddos. The city of Guntersville is very nice with lots of restaurants nearby. Be forewarned we did not see any public restrooms, but it looked like they were building some. There were port-a-potties at the public beach area.
