Hillsboro Trail

nice easy ride in Helena

March, 2020 by benjamin.l.smith

A good ride for the family. Relatively flat with some exception at one end. 299ft total evaluation change. Good shade for most. Walkers common but wide enough for all to enjoy.

Homewood Shades Creek Greenway

lakeshore trail

February, 2020 by hobnero

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.

BMRR South Trail

Red Mt

Great walk and ride. Great for bham as it reflects part of the early history of the city. Blast on the mountain bike.

Horse Creek Trail

Decent trail, not much shade.

July, 2019 by jsimptemp

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.

Five Mile Creek Greenway

Two Mile Extension

June, 2019 by jenniferbjensen0324

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

Sumiton Trail

great start

March, 2018 by ken.segars

Good 1mile start to catch Horse Creek trail.

Horse Creek Trail

Nice ride on a beautiful day!

March, 2018 by ken.segars

Sumiton plus Horse Creek trail 4.2 miles. Nice ride, easy down and back on a beautiful day. Great warm up preparing for a longer trip. Scenery is very nice in March! Drove from Birmingham just to explore.

Horse Creek Trail

very nice trail

September, 2017 by tiffanyrdial

This was a fun little trail to ride our bikes on. We just wanted a casual ride and that’s what we got! It is paved, flat, and shaded in some areas. There are shaded benches along the path which was nice. There are a few locations where the trail does cross over a back country road, so just be aware when you come to those. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed my ride and will be back as soon as I can!

Homewood Shades Creek Greenway

Easy, Friendly trail

May, 2017 by registerkl

Shared asphalt greenway for bikers, walkers, runners. Follows a beautiful creek. Screened from road traffic but not remote. Used by All ages. Popular morning, day & early evening. Although shared, most bikers know to shout "on your right!" as they overtake walkers. Plenty of parking at east end of trail. Pro: Wide, Shaded, Mowed & caretaken, Easy. : No potties unless Homewood field potties are open, a few car breakins recently so stash your goodies well, dog walkers sometimes don't clean up w/doggie bags.

Five Mile Creek Greenway

A nice trail to walk, jog or ride

May, 2017 by disneylego

There are benches and trash cans spread along the path. A nice Creek Trail breaks off the path giving you a chance to walk down to the creek and explore a couple of minor waterfalls (less than a foot high). There is one building that you can rest in from the shade or the rain

Horse Creek Trail

No dirt

October, 2016 by leesacordell

The trail is completely asphalt. It now runs from TS Boyd Elementary School all the way to Bevill State Community College. It is an excellent rail Trail--I ride it on a daily basis. Very Very nice!
