Decatur Trail

Excellent for trikes too!

January, 2021 by rplaborde

We parked at the Mallard Point Park area and there were plenty of available parking. The path was paved in part and some areas had well packed gravel. We have recumbent trikes and this trail was a wonderful trike route. It was wide enough in most areas to accommodate two traffic and the view along the Tennessee River was gorgeous.

Richard Martin Trail

Beautiful but rough

December, 2020 by vnoel3

One if the most peaceful, scenic rail-to-trails, but needs paving. Large size gravel is rough for bikes & horses. Lots of ruts from Elkmont to TN state line. Athens to Elkmont is easier portion. Parking & restroom at Piney Chapel in Athens. Nice lunch cafe in Elkmont.

Sumiton Trail

Pretty

December, 2020 by vnoel3

TVA Nature Loop

Sunset Drive Trail

Mill Creek Greenway (AL)

Nice ride

December, 2020 by vnoel3

Connect to Bradford Creek with trail along Mill Rd for longer ride. Has a dog park. New connection being built at Browns Ferry Rd.

Aldridge Creek Greenway

Great trail

November, 2020 by wcexwgsmc6

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.

Big Cove Creek Greenway

Great trail!

November, 2020 by machar

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.

Sunset Drive Trail

Awesome visit!

November, 2020 by machar

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.

Horse Creek Trail

Great Multi-Use Trail!

November, 2020 by riana.tisdale

Great multi-use Trail! Love the benches along the way and the trail was nice and clear with beautiful surrounding woods. We saw a few others out on bikes and walking, but not very crowded at all. Me and my brother went on in-line skates and my mom biked.
